Mahara 16.10 before 16.10.9 and 17.04 before 17.04.7 and 17.10 before 17.10.4 are vulnerable to bad input when TinyMCE is bypassed by POST packages. Therefore, Mahara should not rely on TinyMCE's code stripping alone but also clean input on the server / PHP side as one can create own packets of POST data containing bad content with which to hit the server.
Mahara 16.10 before 16.10.7, 17.04 before 17.04.5, and 17.10 before 17.10.2 are vulnerable to being forced, via a man-in-the-middle attack, to interact with Mahara on the HTTP protocol rather than HTTPS even when an SSL certificate is present.
Mahara 16.10 before 16.10.7 and 17.04 before 17.04.5 and 17.10 before 17.10.2 have a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability when a user enters invalid UTF-8 characters. These are now going to be discarded in Mahara along with NULL characters and invalid Unicode characters. Mahara will also avoid direct $_GET and $_POST usage where possible, and instead use param_exists() and the correct param_*() function to fetch the expected value.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.13 and 16.04 before 16.04.7 and 16.10 before 16.10.4 and 17.04 before 17.04.2 are vulnerable to recording plain text passwords in the event_log table during the user creation process if full event logging was turned on.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.9 and 15.10 before 15.10.5 and 16.04 before 16.04.3 are vulnerable to a group's configuration page being editable by any group member even when they didn't have the admin role.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.8 and 15.10 before 15.10.4 and 16.04 before 16.04.2 are vulnerable to profile pictures being accessed without any access control checks consequently allowing any of a user's uploaded profile pictures to be viewable by anyone, whether or not they were currently selected as the "default" or used in any pages.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.8 and 15.10 before 15.10.4 and 16.04 before 16.04.2 are vulnerable to some authentication methods, which do not use Mahara's built-in login form, still allowing users to log in even if their institution was expired or suspended.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.10 and 15.10 before 15.10.6 and 16.04 before 16.04.4 are vulnerable to incorrect access control after the password reset link is sent via email and then user changes default email, Mahara fails to invalidate old link.Consequently the link in email can be used to gain access to the user's account.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.7 and 15.10 before 15.10.3 running PHP 5.3 are vulnerable to one user being logged in as another user on a separate computer as the same session ID is served. This situation can occur when a user takes an action that forces another user to be logged out of Mahara, such as an admin changing another user's account settings.
Mahara 15.04 before 15.04.9 and 15.10 before 15.10.5 and 16.04 before 16.04.3 are vulnerable to passwords or other sensitive information being passed by unusual parameters to end up in an error log.
