CVE-2007-2383

Priority
Low
Description
The Prototype (prototypejs) framework before 1.5.1 RC3 exchanges data using
JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) without an associated protection scheme,
which allows remote attackers to obtain the data via a web page that
retrieves the data through a URL in the SRC attribute of a SCRIPT element
and captures the data using other JavaScript code, aka "JavaScript
Hijacking."

Notes
jdstrand> This CVE is general class of attacks called Javascript Hijacking.
It's impact is largely dependent on how the developer a) uses the
library, b) configures the library and c) interacts with the server. While
the paper recommends defeating hijacking via both of two means, the CVE
states that Prototype does not have "an associated protection scheme".
Prototype can be configured to use POST instead of GET, and with server
side scripting (as proposed in the paper), can thwart the attack.
