High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered vulnerability in PrestaShop, which can be exploited to perform Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks.
Input passed via the "product" POST parameter to ajax.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
PrestaShop sets cookies with http-only flag, therefore classic XSS exploitation designed to steal cookies will not work. The following PoC code steals passwords stored in Firefox ("remember password" function) profile:
<form action="http://[host]/[ADMIN_PANEL]/ajax.php" method="post">
This PoC was successfully tested on Firefox 12.0 in default configuration, with one saved password.
