DESCRIPTION:
AmnPardaz Security Research Team have reported some vulnerabilities
in Academic Web Tools (AWT YEKTA), which can be exploited by
malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and SQL injection
attacks.

1) Input passed to the "book_id" parameter in rating.php is not
properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can be
exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.

2) Input passed to the "Fake" parameter in login.php and "glb_sid" in
hta/htmlarea.js.php 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) Input passed to the "file" parameter in rss_getfile.php is not
properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited via
malicious URLs to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions 1.4.3.1 and 1.4.2.8.
Other versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
