Horde Mnemo common-footer.inc Parent Frame Page XSS

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

According to its version, the remote installation of Mnemo fails to
fully sanitize user-supplied input when setting the parent frame's
page title by JavaScript in 'templates/common-footer.inc'. By
leveraging this flaw, an attacker may be able to inject arbitrary HTML
and script code into a user's browser to be executed in the context of
the affected website, thereby resulting in the theft of session
cookies and similar attacks.
