vBulletin newreply.php WYSIWYG_HTML Parameter XSS

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


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is susceptible to
cross-site scripting attacks.

Description :

According to its banner, the remote version of vBulletin is vulnerable
to a cross-site scripting issue, due to a failure of the application
to properly sanitize user-supplied input.

As a result of this vulnerability, it is possible for a remote
attacker to create a malicious link containing script code that will
be executed in the browser of an unsuspecting user when followed.

This may facilitate the theft of cookie-based authentication
credentials as well as other attacks.
