Polopoly XSS vuln.

Polopoly XSS vuln.

Vuln. discovered by : r0t
Date: 21 dec. 2005
vendor:http://www.polopoly.com/
affected version:9 and prior

Product Description:

Polopoly is 100% Java since 1996 and embraces standards and open architecture. The system is browser independent, DB independent, and platform independent. The system thrives in high traffic, personalized web environments.

Vuln. Description:

Polopoly contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to search module paremters isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user.
This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.

Solution:
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
