More information:

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the TYPO3 web content management framework.

Marcus Krause and Michael Stucki from the TYPO3 security team discovered that the jumpUrl mechanism discloses secret hashes enabling a remote attacker to bypass access control by submitting the correct value as a URL parameter and thus being able to read the content of arbitrary files.

Jelmer de Hen and Dmitry Dulepov discovered multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the backend user interface allowing remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML.
