[Bkis-01-2010] Multiple Vulnerabilities in BigAce
 
1. General Information
 
BigAce is a free content management software (CMS) written in PHP, and is available at http://www.bigace.de. In April 2010, Bkis Security discovered an XSS and CSRF vulnerability in BigAce 2.7.1. Taking advantage of this vulnerability, hacker is able to insert pieces of code into the path=E2=80=99s link to execute in users=E2=80=99 browser, leading to the loss of cookies and session. Hacker can also trick users into manipulating some of the system=E2=80=99s functions without users=E2=80=99 awareness. 
 
Bkis has informed the software developer team, and they have patched the vulnerability in the latest software version -  BigAce 2.7.2.

The XSS vulnerability of the software was found in the following modules:
- Create category
- Create Style sheet
- Create Template
- Edit template
- Create Group
- New permission
- Create new configuration
- Comunties
 
Because the input variants of this function are not carefully checked and filtered, hacker is able to insert pieces of code into the path=E2=80=99s link. When users sign in and click this link, the malicious code (JavaScript) will be executed, and users may lose their cookies, session, etc. 
 
The CSRF vulnerability of the software was found in the following modules:
- Delete category
- Delete style sheet
- Delete template
- Delete layout
- Delete group
- Active Permission
- Active Modules
 
Because a task performance process is not authenticated, users can be tricked into manipulating a task without awareness. Thus, hacker is able to perform his malicious tricks via a legitimate user.
