: Vulnerability ID: HTB22695
: Reference: http://www.htbridge.ch/advisory/xss_in_compactcms.html
: Product: CompactCMS
: Vendor: compactcms.nl ( http://www.compactcms.nl/ ) 
: Vulnerable Version: 1.4.1
: Vendor Notification: 04 November 2010 
: Vulnerability Type: XSS (Cross Site Scripting)
: Status: Fixed by Vendor
: Risk level: Low 
: Credit: High-Tech Bridge SA - Ethical Hacking & Penetration Testing (http://www.htbridge.ch/) 
: 
: Vulnerability Details:
: User can execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the vulnerable application.
: 
: The vulnerability exists due to failure in the "Comments" module to 
: properly sanitize user-supplied input in "website" 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.
: 
: Attacker can create comment with special crafted website variable. The 
: following PoC is available:
: 
: http://host/?a=";><script>alert("XSS");</script>

Can you confirm this is the correct PoC? This appears to be the "a" 
parameter and does not specify a script or module. Generally we would 
expect to see something more like:

http://[target]/index.php?&module=Comments&website=[XSS]
