Technical Details & Description:
================================
A persistent cross site scripting vulnerability has been discovered in the official Weblication CMS Core & Grid v12.006.024 CMS.
The vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject own malicious script codes to the application-side of the service to compromise
sensitive user data or affected web-application contents.

The security vulnerability is located in the `wFilemanager.php` & `index.php` files of the `/grid5/scripts/` modules. The injection
point is located in the Project `Title` and the execution point occurs in the `Inhaltsprojekte` output listing section. Remote
attackers with privileged user accounts are able to inject own malicious script code with persistent attack vector to compromise
user session credentials or to manipulate the affected web-application module output context. The request method to inject is POST
and the attack vector is reflected. The injection point is located in the project Title and the execution point occurs in the
Inhaltsprojekte output listing section.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in session hijacking, persistent phishing attacks, persistent external redirects
to malicious source and persistent manipulation of affected or connected application modules.

Request Method(s):
[+] POST

Vulnerable File(s):
[+] index.php
[+] wFilemanager.php

Vulnerable Input Field(s):
[+] Title

Affected Module(s):
[+] Inhaltsprojekte


Proof of Concept (PoC):
=======================
The persistent vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers with low privilege web-application user account and low user interaction.
For security demonstration or to reproduce the vulnerability follow the provided information and steps below to continue.
