XSS on admin login page #639

The :email and :password variables are not escaped in the Admin controller. Also GET vars can be used where only POST should be used.

possibly adding

  params[:email] = escape_html(params[:email])
  params[:password] = escape_html(params[:password])


  flash[:warning] = "Login or password wrong."

might help, but I haven't tried it.

Example for this XSS (view in Firefox or Opera or IE, Webkit filters this kind of XSS):
