FreeBSD : e107 -- code execution and XSS vulnerabilities (a4746a86-4c89-11df-83fb-0015587e2cc1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 45586


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Secunia Research reported two vulnerabilities in e107 :

The first problem affects installations that have the Content Manager plugin enabled. This plugin does not sanitize the 'content_heading' parameter correctly and is therefore vulnerable to a cross site scripting attack.

The second vulnerability is related to the avatar upload functionality. Images containing PHP code can be uploaded and executed.


Update the affected package.
