Moderately critical

IMPACT:
Cross Site Scripting

SOFTWARE:

DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been discovered in Exponent CMS, which can
be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion
attacks.

Input passed to the username, firstname, lastname, and e-mail address
fields when creating a new account is not properly sanitised before
being stored. 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.

Successful exploitation requires that the "Allow Registration?"
configuration option is enabled.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 0.96.6-GA20071003 and
reported in all previous versions.

SOLUTION:
Apply the vendor's official patch.

PROVIDED AND/OR DISCOVERED BY:
Reported by the vendor.
