High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in SyndeoCMS which could be exploited to perform cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks.
1) Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in SyndeoCMS
1.1 The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "loc_id" parameter in starnet/addons/page_slideshow.php and /starnet/addons/tv.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.

2) SQL injection vulnerability in SyndeoCMS
The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation errors in the "user_username" parameter in starnet\modules\sn_studentpages\user_login.php. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP POST 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.
