High-Tech Bridge SA has discovered some vulnerabilities in Habari, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Input passed to the "additem_form" parameter in system/admin/dash_additem.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 the context of an affected site.
2) Input passed to the "status_data" parameter in system/admin/dash_status.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 the context of an affected site.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerabilities requires that "register_globals" is enabled.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 0.6.5. Prior versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 0.6.6.
