The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject malicious script code in post method requests to compromise user session data or to manipulate application contents for clients. The cross site scripting web vulnerability is located in the `username`, `user_first_name`, `user_last_name`, `variant`, `power`, and `milage` parameters of the `index search` module. Remote attackers without privileged access are able to inject own malicious script code in the search input field of the index module post method request. The execution takes place in the results page of the search after submit via post. Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in session hijacking, non-persistent phishing attacks, non-persistent external redirects to malicious source and non-persistent manipulation of affected application modules. Request method(s): [+] POST Vulnerable File(s): [+] index.php Vulnerable Input(s): [+] Trim [+] Power [+] Milage [+] First name [+] Last name [+] Username Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] username [+] user_first_name [+] user_last_name [+] variant [+] power [+] milage Proof of Concept (PoC): ======================= The client-side post inject web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without account and with low or medium user interaction.
