4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered three vulnerabilities in Achievo, 
which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site 
scripting attacks.

1) Input passed via the "searchstring" parameter to dispatch.php (when
"atknodetype" is set to "search.search" and "atkaction" is set to 
"search") is not properly sanitised in modules/search/class.search.inc
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) Input passed via the "field" and "usercol" parameters to 
include.php (when "file" is set to "atk/popups/colorpicker.inc") is 
not properly sanitised in atk/popups/colorpicker.inc 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.
