|Advisory Publication:||September 12, 2012 [without technical details]|
|Vendor Notification:||September 12, 2012|
|Public Disclosure:||October 3, 2012|

|Discovered and Provided:||High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab|
High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Template CMS, which can be exploited to perform Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) and Сross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks.
Input passed via the "themes_editor" POST parameter to /admin/index.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
<form action="http://[host]/admin/index.php?action=add_template&id=themes" method="post">
The application allows authorized administrator to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without making proper validity checks to verify the source of the requests. This can be exploited to add, delete or modify sensitive information, for example to create new administrator or execute arbitrary PHP code.
An attacker has to trick a logged-in administrator to visit a malicious web page containing the following code that will add a new administrator to the CMS:
<form action="http://[host]/admin/index.php?id=system&sub_id=users&action=add" method="post">
<form action="http://[host]/admin/index.php?id=themes&action=edit_template&file=aboutTemplate.php" method="post">
The phpinfo() function will be executed [if allowed by web server configuration] on the following web page:
