Secunia.com:
PHPChain Two Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities
May 04, 2007 @ 11:28:00

Secunia.com has posted a PHP-related issue that users of the PHPChain application should look into:

r0t has discovered some vulnerabilities in PHPChain, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to the "catid" parameter in settings.php (when "action" is set to "edit") and cat.php is not properly sanitised before it is returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

If a user is logged in and the exploit is in place, the attacker could gain access to the application and gain access to a user's information. The recommended fix is to correct the source code so that the information coming in is correctly sanitized.
