CVE-2022-38295 Scanner Detail

Cuppa CMS is a content management system designed to simplify the process of website development and management. It is utilized by web developers and content managers to create, manage, and deploy content on the web efficiently. The platform offers a user-friendly interface and customizable features, making it suitable for a wide range of web projects from personal blogs to large corporate websites. The vulnerability found in version 1.0 of Cuppa CMS highlights the critical need for secure input handling mechanisms to protect users from malicious web activities.

The Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Cuppa CMS version 1.0 exists within the /table_manager/view/cu_user_groups endpoint. This vulnerability allows attackers to inject arbitrary web scripts or HTML into the web page, which are executed in the context of the user's browser session. Through this exploitation, attackers could perform actions on behalf of users, steal session tokens, redirect users to malicious websites, or deface web pages.

Specifically, the vulnerability is triggered when creating a new user group in the Add New Group function. An attacker can inject a malicious script into the Name field, which is improperly sanitized by the application. When this injected script is rendered by a web browser, it executes, leading to the potential compromise of user sessions and data. This exploitation illustrates the lack of proper input validation and output encoding mechanisms in the application's handling of user-supplied data.

If exploited, this XSS vulnerability could lead to several adverse effects including theft of cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information that the browser manages. It could also allow attackers to manipulate the content presented to users, potentially leading to phishing attacks. Moreover, the integrity and reputation of the website could be compromised, leading to a loss of trust among users and potential legal implications.
