BigTree-CMS 4.2.x < 4.2.3 XSS

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9554


The version of BigTree-CMS running on the remote server is affected by a XSS vulnerability.


The version of BigTree-CMS installed on the remote host is 4.2.x prior to 4.2.3 and is affected by a vulnerability that allows a stored XSS attack. This flaw exists because the user creation process does not validate input supplied as username and company name before returning it to users. This may allow a remote, authenticated attacker to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.


Upgrade to BigTree-CMS version 4.2.3 or later.
