Rubén Ventura Piña has discovered two vulnerabilities in the AkoBook component for Mambo, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed to the "gbmail" and "gbpage" parameters in the Mambo installation's index.php script (when "option" is set to "com_akobook" and "func" to "sign") is not properly sanitised before being stored. This can be exploited to insert HTML attributes with script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the guestbook is viewed.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 3.42. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
