v1.42 Content Management System.


Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline:
==================================
2013-10-15:    Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory)


Discovery Status:
=================
Published


Affected Product(s):
====================

Exploitation Technique:
=======================
Remote


Severity Level:
===============
Medium


Technical Details & Description:
================================
A client-side cross site scripting web vulnerability is detected in the official ZAPms v1.42 Content Management System.
The non-persistent cross site scripting web vulnerability allows an attacker to manipulate client side web application 
to browser GET method requests.

The vulnerability is located in the `name` value of the list GET method request. Remote attackers are able to 
manipulate 
the name value to execute client-side script code (application-side).

Exploitation of the vulnerability requires no privileged application user account but low or medium user interaction. 
Successful exploitation of 
the vulnerability results in session hijacking, client-side phishing, client-side external redirects or malware loads 
and client-side manipulation 
of the vulnerable module context.

Request Method(s):
                                [+] [GET]

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
                                [+] name ( rFmScr, eTt, newObj1 & name_new )


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The client-side cross site scripting web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privileged 
application user account and 
with low or medium user interaction. For demonstration or reproduce ...
