PunBB profile.php Multiple Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

According to its banner, the version of PunBB installed on the remote
host fails to properly sanitize user input to the script 'profile.php'
through the 'email' and 'Jabber' parameters. An attacker could
exploit this flaw to embed malicious script or HTML code in his
profile. Then, whenever someone browses that profile, the code would
be executed in that person's browser in the context of the website,
enabling the attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
