Another example of the ksh "here document" vulnerability by Larry W. Cashdollar:

Except it is for Netscape 6.01a on Solaris 2.x.  This creates the same
symlink vulnerability as the previous patchadd post.  Except your more
likely to destroy user files rather than system files. 

run-mozilla.sh creates a "here document" in function moz_usage().

#!/bin/sh

Dangerous temp file creation during installation of Netscape 6 by Larry W. Cashdollar
During installation of Netscape 6.01a for Solaris 2.7/8 Sparc, I noticed the file /tmp/admin.3842 was created with mode 644. As you already know if this package is installed by root in multiuser mode a malicious user could use this to overwrite system files etc..
Here is the dangerous code:
# grep tmp ns6install
cat >/tmp/admin.$$ <<EOF
/usr/sbin/pkgrm -n -a /tmp/admin.$$ ${pkg}.* 2>&1
/usr/sbin/pkgadd -n -a /tmp/admin.$$ -d `pwd` $pkg 2>&1

www.digizen-security.com:
Achilles is a tool designed for testing the security of web applications. Achilles is a proxy server, which acts as a man-in-the-middle during an HTTP session. A typical HTTP proxy will relay packets to and from a client browser and a web server. Achilles will intercept an HTTP session’s data in either direction and give the user the ability to alter the data before transmission. For example, during a normal HTTP SSL connection a typical proxy will relay the session between the server and the client and allow the two end nodes to negotiate SSL. In contrast, when in intercept mode, Achilles will pretend to be the server and negotiate two SSL sessions, one with the client browser and another with the web server. As data is transmitted between the two nodes, Achilles decrypts the data and gives the user the ability to alter and/or log the data in clear text before transmission. Read more

Paper: HTML Form Protocol Attack.
This paper describes how some HTML browsers can be tricked through the use of HTML forms into sending more or less arbitrary data to any TCP port. This can be used to send commands to servers using ASCII based protocols like SMTP, NNTP, POP3, IMAP, IRC, and others. By sending HTML email to unsuspecting users or using a trojan HTML page, an attacker might be able to send mail or post Usenet News through servers normally not accessible to him. Read more
