Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of PhpGroupWare on the remote host is reportedly affected
by HTML injection vulnerabilities that present themselves due to a
lack of sufficient input validation performed on form fields used by
PhpGroupWare modules.

A malicious attacker may exploit these issues to inject arbitrary HTML
and script code using these form fields that then may be incorporated
into dynamically-generated web content.
