Helm Web Hosting Control Panel XSS Vulnerabilities
Friday, 12 October 2007
r0t has reported some vulnerabilities in Helm Web Hosting Control Panel, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed to the "showOption" parameter in interfaces/standard/domain.asp and to the "Folder" and "StartPath" parameters in interfaces/standard/FileManager.asp is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerability is reported in version 3.2.16. Other versions may also be affected.
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
