###Title###: 
Openconstructor CMS 3.12.0 'data/hybrid/i_hybrid.php', 'header' parameter Stored Cross-site Scripting Vulnerability


###Affected Software###:

###Description###:

Verson 3.12.0 is vulnerable, previous version may be affected, but they have not been tested.


###CVE###
CVE-2012-3871


###Impact###:

CVSS Base Score: 4.9 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:N)

###Details###:
When creating a new document in the catalogue section, the application asks to set a name for that object.
The application does not escape the html tags correctly for these parameters. The vulnerability has been tested on an Internet Explorer 7 browser (because the application is designed to work with IE). Newer version of the browser with the anti-xss filter enabled, may help to protect users from such attacks.

'data/hybrid/i_hybrid.php' contains the following code:

$doc->readValues($_POST);
$doc->readFiles($_FILES);
$ds->createDocument($doc);


readValues() does not escape dangerous html carachters, so they are passed to createDocument() which store all the attributes in the database.

When the user reach the main 'Catalogue' section, the XSS is triggered.


###Proof of Concept####:
Here is a trace of the required POST to plant the javascript
