BasiliX Message Content XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2011 George A. Theall


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains PHP scripts that are prone to cross-site
scripting attacks.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running a BasiliX version 1.1.0 or lower.
Such versions are vulnerable to cross-scripting attacks since they do
not filter HTML tags when showing a message. As a result, an attacker
can include arbitrary HTML and script code in a message and have that
code executed by the user's browser when it is viewed.
