Technical Details & Description:
An application-side input validation web vulnerability has been discovered in the official Fing mobile iOS web-application.
The security web vulnerability allows to inject malicious script codes on the application-side of the vulnerable iOS mobile app.
The vulnerability is located in the encode mechanism of the `Address` input field. Local attackers with restricted or privileged
web-application user accounts are able to inject the address input to the mail body message context on sharing. The attacker injects
a new Hostname Address to scan and shares the input context mail mail to the addressbook. The injection point is the Address input
field and the execution point is the mail message body context.
The security risk of the application-side vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.5.
Exploitation of the persistent web vulnerability requires a low privileged ios device account with restricted access and low user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities results in persistent phishing mails, session hijacking, persistent external redirect to malicious
sources and application-side manipulation of affected or connected module context.

[+] Mail Message Body (Share Function)
Proof of Concept (PoC):
The application-side validation web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low privileged iOS device user account and without user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
