Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Santafox, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) Input passed via the "search" parameter to search.html 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 making proper validity checks to verify the requests. This can be exploited to e.g. create an administrative user by tricking a logged-in administrator into visiting a malicious website.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.02. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Do not browse untrusted websites or follow untrusted links while logged in to the application. Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
