IMP common-footer.inc Parent Frame Page Title XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2012 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 IMP 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 web
site, thereby resulting in the theft of session cookies and similar
attacks.
