Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in ocPortal before 9.0.17 allow remote authenticated users to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via the (1) title or (2) text field in the cms_calendar page to cms/index.php; unspecified fields in (3) the cms_polls page to cms/index.php or (4) a new topic in the topics page to forum/index.php; or (5) a new PT (private topic/private message) in the topics page to forum/index.php.

A vulnerability was reported in ocPortal. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the ocPortal software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
