Version(s): 6.0.2
Description:   Several vulnerabilities were reported in ECW-Shop. A remote user can modify the shopping cart total price. A remote user can inject SQL commands. A remote user can also conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary HTML to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the ECW-Shop 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.

The 'max' and 'ctg' parameters are affected.

Some demonstration exploit URLs are provided:
