DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Elxis CMS, which can
be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion and SQL
injection attacks and by malicious people to conduct cross-site
scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.

1) Input passed via the "search" POST parameter to
administrator/index2.php (when "option" is set to "com_users") 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) Input passed via the "name" and "misc" (when "option" is set to
"com_contact") and "title" (when "option" is set to "com_modules")
POST parameters to administrator/index2.php is not properly sanitised
before being used and returned to the user. This can be exploited to
insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will get executed in a
user's browser session in context of an affected site when the
malicious data is being viewed.

3) Input passed via the "id" parameter to administrator/index2.php
(when "option" is set to "com_content" and "task" is set to "edit")
is not properly sanitised before being used in SQL queries. This can
be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL
code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability requires that
"magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled.

4) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP
requests without making proper validity checks to verify the
requests. This can be exploited to e.g. manipulate contact
information in the administrative section by tricking an
administrative user into visiting a malicious web site while being
logged in to the application.

NOTE: Vulnerabilities #2 and #3 can be used in conjunction with
vulnerability #4.

The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 2009.2 rev2631. Prior
versions may also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Apply vendor recommended patches and source code changes.
