Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered two vulnerabilities in Seo Panel, which can be exploited to perform 
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks agains users of the vulnerable application to steal their sensitive data.

http://[host]/directories.php?capcheck=1%22%20onmouseover%3dalert%28%22immuniweb%22%29;%20%22&dir_name=&google_pagerank=&langcode=&pageno=8&sec=directorymgr&stscheck=1


1.2 The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitisation of user-supplied data in "keyword" HTTP GET parameter 
passed to "/proxy.php" script. A remote attacker can trick a logged-in user to open a specially crafted link and

The exploitation example below uses the "alert()" JavaScript function to display "immuniweb" word:

http://[host]/proxy.php?keyword=1%22%20onmouseover%3dalert%28%22immuniweb%22%29;%20%22&status=active
