Overview HumHub is a social media platform written in PHP. In version 1.0.1 and earlier, it is vulnerable to a reflected XSS attack if debugging is enabled, as well as a self-XSS attack. This allows an attacker to steal cookies, inject JavaScript keyloggers, or bypass CSRF protection. 3. Details XSS 1: Reflected XSS CVSS: Medium 4.3 AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N Description: When the debug mode is enabled, which it is by default, the UserSearch parameter is vulnerable to reflected XSS.
