Description

OrangeHRM[1] 2.7.1[2] -- the latest stable release as of this writing -- suffers from a persistent XSS in the vacancy name variable. Steps:

  1. Navigate to following URL: http://[domain]/symfony/web/index.php/recruitment/viewJobVacancy

  2. Add or Edit a Vacancy

  3. In the Vacancy Name parameter put XSS script
  4. Save
  5. Navigate back to top Vacancy page (click back button)
  6. Witness XSS

Screen shots of above exploit steps may be found on my website (for those who want additional validation): http://securitymaverick.com/?p=408

I contacted OrangeHRM[3] but did not receive a reply.

Thanks, Ken
