VERIFY ADVISORY: http://secunia.com/advisories/17675/
CRITICAL: Moderately critical
IMPACT: Cross Site Scripting, Manipulation of data
WHERE: >From remote
SOFTWARE: Joomla! 1.x http://secunia.com/product/5788/
DESCRIPTION: Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Joomla!, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct SQL injection or cross-site scripting attacks.
1) Certain unspecified input 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 a vulnerable site.
2) Input passed to the "Itemid" parameter in the "mod_poll" module is not sanitised properly before being used in a SQL query. This can potentially be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
3) Certain unspecified input passed to several methods in the "mosDBTable" class is not sanitised properly before being used in a SQL query. This can potentially be exploited to manipulate SQL queries by injecting arbitrary SQL code.
Note: An error that potentially allows the misuse of the Media component file management functions has also been fixed.
SOLUTION: Update to version 1.0.4. http://developer.joomla.org/sf/go/projects.joomla/frs.joomla_1_0
