DESCRIPTION:
Jean Pascal Pereira has discovered two vulnerabilities in Commentics,
which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site
scripting and request forgery attacks.

1) Input passed via the "id" parameter to admin/index.php (when
"page" is set to "edit_page") 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.

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 the administrator's
password by tricking a logged-in administrator into visiting a
malicious web site.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2.0. 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.
