PHP-Fusion BBCode IMG Tag XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running a version of PHP-Fusion that does not
sufficiently sanitize JavaScript code. Specifically, an attacker can
inject JavaScript code that bypasses the filters in 'fusion_core.php'
by HTML-encoding it. This code will then be executed in the context
of a user's browser when viewing the malicious BBcode on the remote
host.
