This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote web server contains CGI scripts that are prone to cross-
site scripting attacks.
The remote host is running Gossamer Links, a web links management tool
from Gossamer Threads and written in Perl.
The installed version of Gossamer Links fails to properly sanitize
user-supplied input to various parameters of the 'user.cgi' and
'add.cgi' scripts, which are used by an administrator. By leveraging
this flaw, an attacker may be able to cause arbitrary HTML and script
code to be executed by a user's browser within the context of the
affected application, leading to cookie theft and similar attacks.

Risk factor :
