Version(s): 2.4
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in TorrentFlux. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote authenticated user can obtain cookie values from the database. A remote authenticated user can modify or delete cookie values in the database.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL or torrent file that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser [CVE-2014-6027]. The code will originate from the site running the TorrentFlux 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.

Nicolas Guigo of iSEC Partners reported this vulnerability.

A remote authenticated user supply a URL with a specially crafted cookie id (cid) parameter value to access all user cookies stored in the database [CVE-2014-6028].
