Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in Traq, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and request forgery attacks.
1) Input passed via the "plugin" parameter to admincp/plugins.php (when "edit" is set) 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. manipulate SQL queries by tricking a logged-in administrator into visiting a malicious web site.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.3.5. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Do not browse untrusted websites or follow untrusted links while logged in to the application.
