Savvy Content Manager "searchterms" Cross-Site Scripting

Sunday, 16 March 2008

Russ McRee has reported a vulnerability in Savvy Content Manager, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to the "searchterms" parameter in searchresults.cfm, search_results.cfm, or search_results/index.cfm 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.

Apply the official patch. Contact the vendor for details.
