Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Fork CMS, which can be exploited 
to perform Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks.

1) Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) in Fork CMS: CVE-2012-1188

1.1 Input passed via the "type" and "querystring" GET parameters to /private/en/error is not properly sanitised before 
being returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of affected 
website.

The following PoC (Proof of Concept) demostrate the vulnerability:

http://[host]/private/en/error?type=%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E
http://[host]/private/en/error?type=action-not-allowed&querystring=%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29;%3C/script%3E.1

1.2 Input passed via the "name" GET parameter to /private/en/locale/index is not properly sanitised before being 
returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of affected 
website.
