Synopsis :

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

scripting vulnerabilities due to its failure to sanitize user input in
several PHP scripts used as libraries and themes. A remote attacker
may use these issues to cause arbitrary code to be executed in a
user's browser, to steal authentication cookies and the like.
