Description about the CMS

Elefant is a content management system written in PHP that includes a modern PHP framework for web developers. Elefant is easy-to-use and straight-forward for all levels of users. It is also secure, fast, well-documented, and well-tested.

Elefant's admin tools are minimalist without sacrificing flexibility. We wanted a system that even our moms could use with little or no help, but that power users will enjoy using too. So we made hard choices to keep a lot of needless complexity out.

Instead, we focus on providing a solid editing experience out-of-the-box, well-considered default settings, and just the right set of features to satisfy 90% of the sites we encounter, as opposed to sacrificing simplicity in order to solve every possible edge case.

* PERSISTENT XSS VULNERABILITY :

In the admin panel, input the TITLE and BODY with the following code, leading to Persistent XSS exploit in the CMS

Exploit: <IFRAME SRC="javascript:alert('XSS');"></IFRAME>

This is not a vulnerability, because the person who can access the form would have to be already logged in as the owner of the site. That form intentionally allows them to publish or edit pages to their web site, including "view source" access to edit the raw HTML of their site, from behind an admin login.
