DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in UseResponse, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request
forgery attacks and by malicious users to conduct script insertion
attacks and compromise a vulnerable system.

1) Input passed via the "content" parameter to comments/add is not
properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert
arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious
data is being viewed.

2) 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. change an administrator's
email address by tricking a logged in user into visiting a malicious
web site.

3) Input passed to admin/languages/en/dictionary/resources/edit is
not properly sanitised before being used to save PHP files. This can
be exploited to execute arbitrary code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires an
administrator account.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.1. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. Do
not browse untrusted websites or follow untrusted links while logged
in to the application.
