Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in odCMS, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) Input passed to the "Page" parameter in _main/index.php, _members/index.php, _forum/index.php, _docs/index.php, and _announcements/index.php, and to the "design" parameter in codes/archive.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.
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.
3) Input passed via the "content" parameter to index.php while updating member pages is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.07. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: 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.
