SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1016823
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1016823
CVE Reference:   CVE-2006-4751, CVE-2006-4752   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Jun 3 2008
Original Entry Date:  Sep 12 2006
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Version(s): 0.5.1
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in XHP CMS. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'errcode' parameter before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the XHP CMS software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A demonstration exploit is provided:

index.php?errcode=<script>alert(document.cookie);</script>

A remote user can request the following URL to determine the installation path:

action.php?action=1&module=engine

HACKERS PAL discovered this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the XHP CMS software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote user can determine the installation path.

Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
Vendor URL:  xhp.targetit.ro/ (Links to External Site)
