An attacker - who is able to change his profile settings - could insert malicious code into "Email" field - within "Authors" template - in order to create a persistent XSS vulnerability for all user/admin who access to Plume's management interface. 2.2 "u_realname" parameter "u_realname" parameter is not correctly sanitized before being passed to server side script "manager/users.php" via http POST method. An attacker - who is able to change his profile settings - could insert malicious code into "Name" field - within "Authors" template - in order to create a persistent XSS vulnerability for all user/admin who access to Plume's management interface. 2.3 "c_author" parameter An unauthenticated user could insert html/javascript code in "Author" field within "ADD A COMMENT" section - which is present in every web page - due to an incorrect sanitization of "c_author" parameter. This will produce a Persistent XSS vulnerability for all user/admin who will click on "Comments" tab within Plume's administration interface. 3)Exploit 3.1 Exploit "u_email" parameter Insert the following code in "Email" field within "Authors" template under "manager/users.php?user_id=<user_id>": <script>alert("xss")</script> 3.2 Exploit "u_realname" parameter Insert the following code in "Name" field within "Authors" template under "manager/users.php?user_id=<user_id>": <script>alert("xss")</script> 3.3 Exploit "c_author" parameter Insert the following code in "Author" field within "ADD A COMMENT" section": <script>alert("xss")</script> +----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+
