The Vulnerability Laboratory Researcher Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in GetSimple CMS v3.1.
2012-04-16: Public or Non-Public Disclosure
Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in GetSimple v3.1 Content Management System.
The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent).
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent)
context manipulation. Exploitation requires low user inter action. The bug is located on the email & permalink
input fields of the application websettings.

Multiple non persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are detected in GetSimple v3.1 Content Management System.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to hijack website customer, moderator or admin sessions with high required
user inter action or local low privileged user account. Successful exploitation can result in account steal, phishing
& client-side content request manipulation.
