Russ McRee has discovered some vulnerabilities in The Bug Genie, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and request forgery attacks.
1) Input passed via the "scope" parameter to e.g. index.php, modules/search/search.php, or modules/search/search_stripped.php is not properly sanitised in include/classes/BUGSscope.class.php 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 a user's password or delete a user by tricking a logged in administrative user into visiting a malicious web site.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.1.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 2.1.2.
