Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Jeebles Directory, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and to disclose sensitive information, and by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system.
1) Input passed to the download.php script is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to download arbitrary files by passing full paths (e.g. the settings2.inc.php file containing the administrator password).
2) Input passed in various parameters to the administration system's Settings part is not properly sanitised before being stored in settings.inc.php. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary PHP code.
Successful exploitation requires valid administrator credentials (but see #1) and write access to settings.inc.php.
3) Input passed to the "path" parameter in index.php 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.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.9.60. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
Provided and/or discovered by: 1) hack2prison
2) Discovered by an anonymous person.
3) Reportedly discovered by ZoRLu.
