DESCRIPTION:
Stefan Schurtz has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in AdaptCMS.
These can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security
restrictions and conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

1) Input passed via the "view" parameter to admin.php is not properly
verified and can be exploited to bypass the authentication mechanism
and view the contents of the administration panel.

2) Input passed via the "view" parameter to admin.php 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 an affected site.

3) Input passed via the "do" parameter (when "view" is set to
"share") to admin.php 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 an affected
site.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.0.1. Other versions
may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Manually update the config.php file via the "file releases" section
of the administration panel, which fixes vulnerabilities #1 and #2.
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
