Two vulnerabilities have been reported in phpWebSite, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed to the "search" parameter in the search 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.
This vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.4.0. Other versions may also be affected.
2) Certain unspecified input 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.
This vulnerability is reported in versions prior to 1.0.0.
Solution: A fix for vulnerability #1 is reportedly available via Boost. Update to version 1.0.0 or later, which fixes vulnerability #2.
