AmnPardaz Security Research Team have reported some vulnerabilities and a security issue in Acidcat CMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection attacks, or to bypass certain security restrictions.
1) Input passed to the "cID" parameter in default.asp and the "username" parameter in main_login2.asp is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary code.
2) A security issue is caused due to improper restricting access to default_mail_aspemail.asp. This can be exploited to send mails via the affected application.
3) Input passed to the "field" parameter in admin/admin_colors_swatch.asp 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 on context of an affected site.
The vulnerabilities and the security issue are reported in version 3.4.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Restrict access to default_mail_aspemail.asp.
