TomatoCMS index.php title parameter cross site scripting
|tomatocms-index-title-xss (58471)||Medium Risk|
TomatoCMS is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the index.php/admin/news/article/add script. A remote attacker with Add new article permissions could exploit this vulnerability using the title, subtitle, or author fields to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
Upgrade to the latest version of TomatoCMS (2.0.5 or later), available from the TomatoCMS Web site. See References.
