Description

Pligg is prone to multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities and a cross-site request-forgery vulnerability.

An attacker can exploit these issues to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or perform unauthorized actions when masquerading as the victim. Other attacks are also possible.

Versions prior to Pligg 1.0.3 are vulnerable.
