Pixars Tractor contains a stored cross-site scripting vulnerability


Pixar’s Tractor network rendering software is vulnerable to stored cross-site scripting which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary Javascript.


CWE-79: Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation – CVE-2018-5411

Pixar’s Tractor software, versions 2.2 and earlier, contain a stored cross-site scripting vulnerability in the field that allows a user to add a note to an existing node. The stored information is displayed when a user requests information about the node. An attacker could insert Javascript into this note field that is then saved and displayed to the end user.


An attacker might include Javascript that could execute on an authenticated user’s system that could lead to website redirects, session cookie hijacking, social engineering, etc. As this is stored with the information about the node, all other authenticated users with access to this data are also vulnerable.


Pixar has released an updated version of this software that mitigates this vulnerability, Tractor version 2.3 (build 1923604). Affected users should update to this version.
