Description:
Kayako eSupport is one of the most feature packed support systems; in this 
tour you will find why over a thousand companies have decided to opt for 
eSupport and use it to process their daily support requests. [As quoted 
from their website]


Cross Site Scripting:
Cross site scripting exists in Kayako eSupport. This vulnerability exists
due to user supplied input not being checked properly. Below is an example.

http://path/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=search&searchm=[CODEGOESHERE]

This vulnerability could be used to steal cookie based authentication 
credentials within the scope of the current domain, or render hostile code 
in a victim's browser.



SQL Injection: 
Kayako eSupport is prone to SQL Injection in a number of places. Below are 
some examples of url's that could be used to take advantage of these 
vulnerabilities.

http://path/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=subcat&_i=[SQL]
http://path/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=rate&_i=[SQL]&type=no
http://path/index.php?_a=knowledgebase&_j=questiondetails&_i=[SQL]
http://path/index.php?_a=tickets&_m=viewmain&email22=blah () blah&ticketkey22=[
SQL]
http://path/index.php?_a=tickets&_m=viewmain&email22=[SQL]&ticketkey22=

These is also a SQL Injection vulnerability in the "Home > Ticket Status 
Forgot Key" feature. This can be take advantage of by putting a malicious 
query in the email field. Because of the location of the unchecked variable 
in the query, it makes it easy for an attacker to use these issues to query 
just about any info from the underlying database. It should also be noted
that 
the attacker does not need to be logged in to eSupport



Solution:
The Kayako support team was informed of these vulnerabilities and they
should 
be fixed soon.
