Description

CMS Made Simple 1.7.0 and earlier is vulnerable to cross site scripting in the
backend. The personal options page at admin/editprefs.php contains the field
date_format_string, which is not properly escaped and can be filled with
Javascript-code, e.g. ">.

As this page cannot be viewed by the admin or other users, this only allows
quite unlikely attack scenarios, so the impact should be considered very low.

Vendor has released 1.7.1, which filters out HTML-tags and restricts the field
size to 10 chars. Filtering out HTML-tags alone does not help, as one can
still use JavaScript event handlers (e.g. onMouseOver), but 10 chars doesn't
allow any useful code to be injected. The proper solution would be escaping
the output including quotes. So this is fixed, but it's not a very clean
solution.
