Vulnerability Note VU#973460
drchrono Electronic Health Record (EHR) web applications vulnerable to cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery
drchrono Electronic Health Record (EHR) web applications allow cross-site scripting (XSS) and cross-site request forgery (CSRF) that could allow an attacker to obtain sensitive patient information.
To exploit these vulnerabilities, an attacker would need to 1.) be (or act as) an authenticated user to upload or send malicious content or 2.) entice an authenticated user (most likely a clinician) to access the attacker's uploaded content or a web page hosted by the attacker.
By uploading or enticing a user to visit a specially crafted web page (either uploaded to the application or hosted by the attacker), an attacker can obtain nearly any EHR data, including sensitive patient health records and personally identifying information (PII).
These vulnerabilities have been fixed as of 6 Oct 2014.
