Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in NooMS, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) Input passed to the "page_id" parameter in smileys.php and "q" in search.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.
These vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.1. Other versions may also be affected.
2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. change the administrator's password by tricking a logged in administrator into visiting a malicious web site.
This vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.1.1, which fixes the "page_id" parameter in smileys.php. Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Do not browse untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being logged-in to the application.
