Subject: CVE request: eZ Publish XSS


We identified a XSS vulnerability in the eZ Publish application. Here comes some details.

1) Email address of requester, &
Yann MICHARD discovered the vulnerability, so all the credits goes to him.

2) Software name and optionally vendor name
Vendor: eZ
Product name: Ez Publish
Editions: both Enterprise & Community

3) At least one of (to determine is this a security issue):
   1. Type of vulnerability

 Access to the vulnerable website (no need for any credentials)
   3. Attack outcome
 A browser is enough to execute the attack.

  1. Link to vulnerable source code or fix
 Not available yet.

  2. Link to source code change log
 Not available yet.

  3. Link to security advisory
 Not available yet.

  4. Link to bug entry

  5. Request comes from project member (a.k.a. "trust me, it's a problem")
Knudsen <> from Ez can confirm the vulnerability.

5) Affected version(s) (3.2.4, 3.x, current version, all current releases, something)
The whole 4.x serie it seems (4.1 to 4.6 from the bug entry).

6) Whether or not this has been previously requested (i.e. on OSS-Sec or to cve-assign)
No, this is our first request relative to this vulnerability.

7) Is this an Open Source or commercial software request
Both, the affected software has 2 editions, one open-source, one commercial.

8) Is this an embargoed issue (if yes and commercial: send to cve-assign, if yes and open source: send to vs-sec?)

9) IF multiple issues are listed please list affected versions for each issue and/or who reported them (so we can determine CVE split/merge).
The editor did now publish a Security Advisory yet, but he confirmed the vulnerability.
The first issue we reported on this application was affected the CVE 2012-1565, but we don't think it should be used for a merge as the 2 issues are distincts.
