PHP Code Snippet Library index.php Multiple Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running PHP Code Snippet Library (PHP-CSL), a
library written in PHP.

The remote version of this software fails to sanitize input to the
'cat_select' parameter of the 'index.php' script. This can be used to
take advantage of the trust between a client and server allowing the
malicious user to execute malicious JavaScript on the client's
machine.

address the issue.
