Technical Details & Description:


Multiple client-side cross site scripting vulnerabilities has been discovered in the Piwigo v2.8.2 content management system.

The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject malicious script code to client-side browser to web-application requests.

The client-side cross site scripting vulnerabilities are located in the `tab`,`to`,`section`,`mode`, `installstatus` and

`display` parameters of the `admin.php` file. Remote attackers are able to inject own malicious script code to hijack

admin or moderator session credentials or to manipulate the affected webpages. The attack vector is non-persistent and

the request method to inject is GET. The injection points are the vulnerable parameters and the execution point occurs

in the status message or exception of the backend. The issues affect the backend within the vulnerable modules context.

The security risk of the vulnerabilities are estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.6.

Exploitation of the web vulnerability requires no privileged web-application user account and only low user interaction.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in non-persistent phishing attacks, session hijacking, non-persistent

external redirect to malicious sources and non-persistent manipulation of affected or connected web module context.
