Multiple XSS Vulnerabilities Found in Joomla! 1.7.0


Joomla! 1.7.0 (stable version) is vulnerable to multiple Cross Site Scripting issues.

About Joomla:- 
Joomla is a free and open source content management system (CMS) for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets. It comprises a model–view–controller (MVC) Web application framework that can also be used independently.
Joomla is written in PHP, uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques and software design patterns, stores data in a MySQL database, and includes features such as page caching, RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, search, and support for language internationalization.


Vulnerability Description:-

Several parameters (searchword, extension, asset, author ) in Joomla! Core components are not properly sanitized upon submission to the /index.php url, which allows attacker to conduct Cross Site Scripting attack. This may allow an attacker to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary script code in a victim's browser.


Version Affected:-
1.7.0 <=


PROOF-OF-CONCEPT/EXPLOIT:-
parameter: searchword, component: com_search (Browser: IE, Konqueror)
=======================================================
N.B. Our previous reported issue of "searchword" parameter XSS was not fixed completely.
