Overview:

Quote from www.expblog.de:

flexibles und schnelles Mehrbenutzer-weBlog welches durch ein
Plugin-System komfortabel erweiterbar ist."

There are some cross site scripting vulnerabilities which can
be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.

The vulnerability has been discovered in the latest version. Other
versions may also be affected.


Details:

1) Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability in kalender.php

Arround the lines 130-140 the variable `$_SERVER['PHP_SELF']` is
not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited
to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a
user's browser session in context of an affected site when the
malicious data is viewed.

2) Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability in pre_details.php

Arround the lines 15-20 the variable
`$_POST["captcha_session_code"]` is not properly sanitised before
being used. This variable is used in the details.php arround
line 152, here an attacker can insert malicious code. The
captcha class may be affected too, because you can let it open a
special file (captcha_class.php, arround line 140).


Proof of Concept:

1) details.php/%3E%22%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert('Unsecure')%3C/script%3E

2) comment=1&captcha_session_code=>"><script>alert('hole')</script>...


Solution/Fix:

Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
Use functions like PHP`s htmlentities() function.
