Title: e107 CMS 'submitnews.php' Multiple HTML Injection Vulnerabilities

Severity: MODERATE

Description:

e107 CMS is a content manager implemented in PHP.

The application is prone to multiple HTML-injection vulnerabilities because it fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'author_name', 'itemtitle', and 'item' parameters of the 'submitnews.php' script. The injected data will be displayed to the application administrator in the 'news preview' section in the 'newspost.php' script.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code could execute in the context of the affected website, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or to control how the site is rendered to the user; other attacks are also possible.

These issues affect e107 CMS 0.7.11; other versions may also be vulnerable.

Affected Products:

  • e107.org e107 website system 0.7.11
