Luny has reported two vulnerabilities in mAds, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and script insertion attacks.
1) Input passed via the URL is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
2) An input validation error exists in the search functionality due to search results not being properly sanitised before being displayed to users. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session via a search result from a malicious web site.
The vulnerabilities have been reported in version 1.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
