DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Pligg CMS, which can
be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.

1) Input passed to the "date" parameter in search.php (when
"advancedsearch" is set to any value) 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.

This vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.4. Other versions may
also be affected.

2) Input passed to the "return" parameter in login.php, "q" and
"search" parameters in search.php, and "page" parameter in index.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 to the "keyword" parameter in user.php (when "view"
is set to "search") 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.

These vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.1.5. Prior versions
may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.2.0.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
1) Sow Ching Shiong, via Secunia.
