High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in BLOG:CMS which could be exploited to perform cross-site scripting, script insertion and cross-site request forgery attacks.
1.1 The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "amount" parameter in admin/index.php. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP POST request to the vulnerable script and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user`s browser in context of the vulnerable website. Successful exploitation requires that victim is logged-in into the application and has access to administrative interface.
1.2 The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "action" parameter in admin/index.php. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the vulnerable script and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user`s browser in context of the vulnerable website. Successful exploitation requires that victim is logged-in into the application and has access to administrative interface.
Input passed to the "body" parameter in action.php when posting comments is not properly sanitized. A remote attacker can insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in user`s browser in context of the vulnerable website when user views the malicious data.
The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of the request origin in admin/libs/admin.php. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted link, trick a logged-in administrator into following that link and change administrator`s credentials.
