Subject: CVE request: Havalite CMS 1.1.7 stored XSS vulnerability in
 comments of blog posts

Havalite CMS has stored XSS vulnerability in comments of blog posts. Example:

POST "comment" with value %E2%80%9C%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert%28document.cookie%29%3C%2Fscript%3E

Tested in 1.1.7 (cbd391e913d04224225cf924a7fcb2b5), which was uploaded 2012-11-07 to I tried to contact vendor without response.

Some other notes:
- CVE-2012-5919 still not fixed in 1.1.7 version
- CVE-2012-5893 does not work without administrator privileges, but uploaded files are executed (for example PHP)
- Typos in "readme.html"
- 777 modes not needed even it was in several places. 711 is enough for content directories

I recommend not to use this software before these vulnerabilities are fixed.
