A Vulnerability Laboratory Researcher discovered multiple Web Vulnerabilities in SmartJoBboard v3.4 Build 5140.
2012-04-03: Public or Non-Public Disclosure
A persistent input validation vulnerabilities are detected in SmartJoBboard ver-3.4 build 5140
The bugs allow remote attackers to implement/inject malicious script code on the application side (persistent).
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to session hijacking (manager/admin) or stable (persistent)
context manipulation. Exploitation requires low user inter action.
[+] Create resume (name of resume, institution, major) are all parameters that are injectible
[+] Sending a message (Title)
[+] Create a screening-questionnaires
[+] Creating a job
The bugs allow remote attackers to enforce the user (admin) to change his password,add a page, or create a new user (persistent)
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability can lead to creating a new admin account or create a new page.
Proof of Concept:
he issue can be exploited by an insert on the Created Object function with script code as value.
The result is the persistent execution out of the web application context.

The security risk of the persisten input validation vulnerability is estimated as medium.
The security risk of the cross site request forgery vulnerability is estimated as low.
