====================================================================== 4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered three vulnerabilities in TomatoCMS, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.

Input passed via the "title", "subTitle", and "author" parameters to index.php/admin/news/article/add is not properly sanitised before being displayed to the user.
