|Vendor Notification:||December 2, 2010|
|Public Disclosure:||December 16, 2010|
|Latest Update:||December 9, 2010|
|Vulnerability Type:||Cross-Site Scripting [CWE-79]|

|Solution Status:||Fixed by Vendor|
|Discovered and Provided:||High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab|
High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Habari which could be exploited to perform cross-site scripting attacks and gain potentially sensitive information.
The weakness was found in the "/system/admin/header.php" and "/system/admin/comments_items.php" scripts. A remote attacker can obtain knowledge of the application`s installation path by directly accessing the system/admin/header.php and system/admin/comments_items.php scripts.
2.1 The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "additem_form" parameter in system/admin/dash_additem.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 and that register_globals is on.
2.2 The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "status_data" parameter in system/admin/dash_status.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 and that register_globals is on.
