Vulnerability Details:
User can execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the vulnerable application.

The vulnerability exists due to failure in the "/core/admin/parametres_base.php" script to properly sanitize user-supplied input in "title" variable. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could result in a compromise of the application, theft of cookie-based authentication credentials, disclosure or modification of sensitive data.

An attacker can use browser to exploit this vulnerability. The following PoC is available:

<form action="http://host/core/admin/parametres_base.php"; method="post" name="main" >
<input type="hidden" name="title" value='PluXml"><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>'>
