DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Liferay Portal, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP
requests without performing any validity checks to verify the
requests. This can be exploited to e.g. disclose potentially
sensitive information by tricking a logged in user into visiting a
malicious web site.

This vulnerability is reported in versions 6.1 CE and 6.1 EE.

2) Input passed to the "uploadProgressId" parameter in
html/portal/upload_progress_poller.jsp 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) Certain input passed to the "ckEditorConfigFileName" parameter
when editing articles in a journal 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.

4) Certain input passed to the "_16_chartId" parameter when viewing
the currency converter 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.

5) Certain input passed to the "tag" parameter when viewing blog
categories 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 reported in versions 5.2 and prior, 6.1 CE
and prior, and 6.1 EE and prior.

SOLUTION:
Filter malicious characters and character sequences using a proxy. Do
not browse untrusted sites or follow untrusted links while being
logged-in to the application.
