Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in CMSphp, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information or to conduct cross-site scripting and request forgery attacks.
1) Input passed via the "mod_file" parameter to modules.php is not properly verified before being used to include files. This can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local resources.
2) Input passed via the "name" parameter to modules.php and via the "cook_user" parameter to 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.
3) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validation checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to perform certain administrative actions (e.g. change the administrator's password) when a logged-in administrator e.g. visits a malicious web site.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 0.21. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised and verified. Do not browse untrusted site while being logged in as an administrator.
