Introduction

HolaCMS is a Content Management System.

More Details

Cross Site Scripting: Input passed directly to the "acuparam" parameter in "index_cms.php" 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 an affected site.

Workaround

Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised. You should work with "htmlspecialchars()" or "htmlentities()" php-function to ensure that html tags are not going to be executed.

Example: $pass = htmlentities($_POST['pass']); $test = htmlspecialchars($_GET('test')); ?>
