Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in CMS Vigile, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and to compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the "cat" parameter through index.php to the Download module and the "title" parameter through index.php to the Wiki module 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.
Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities requires that the Download or Wiki modules have been installed.
2) Input passed to the "rem_pass", "rem_user", and "to" parameters in index.php (when "pag" is set to "vedipm") is not properly sanitised before being stored. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.8. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
