1- XSS at [
id parameter:

To exploit the XSS via GET in the endpoint *cm/edit_form/postcategory* and
parameter *id*, just insert a double quotes character (") to escape the
string the, close the current by adding a ">" then include a javascript
payload. Follows an example:

* [http://localhostgila.com/cm/edit_form/postcategory?id=8

2- CSRF and XSS at admin/themes:

The following HTML code exploits both XSS and CSRF vulnerabilities. The
admin/themes form is vulnerable to CSRF due to the lack of anti-CSRF
tokens, and to XSS due to no proper validations of its inputs. To exploit
these vulnerabilities, an attacker should host the following form and trick
the administrator into visit this page.

<html> <body> <script>history.pushState('', '', '/') </script>
<form action="
method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<input type="hidden" name="option[color]" value="#e91428" />
