Vendor Notification: 05 April 2011 
Vulnerability Type: XSS (Cross Site Scripting)
Risk level: Medium 
Credit: High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab ( http://www.htbridge.ch/advisory/ ) 

Vulnerability Details:
The vulnerability exists due to failure in the "editini.php" script to properly sanitize user-supplied input in "url" 
User can execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the vulnerable application.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could result in a compromise of the application, theft of cookie-based 
authentication credentials, disclosure or modification of sensitive data.

The following PoC is available:


Risk level is medium in your advisory. My opinion is totally different. You need to be logged in to use this 
XSS-vulnerability to cause any damage. I would say that this is at least low, because of the impact vector. Did the 
vendor response anything?

Still not fixed by vendor.

Best regards,
Henri Salo
