X0r has discovered a vulnerability in tlNews, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing access to the admin interface by checking if a certain cookie exists. This can be exploited to gain administrative access to the application by creating the cookie "tlNews_login" and assigning it the value "admin".
This vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.2. Other versions may also be affected.
