This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote web server contains a PHP script that is vulnerable to a
cross-site scripting issue.
The remote host is running AutoIndex, a free PHP script for indexing
files in a directory.
The installed version of AutoIndex fails to properly sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'search' parameter of the 'index.php'
script. 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.
See also :
Upgrade to AutoIndex version 1.5.3 or later if using 1.x, or to version
2.1.1 or later if using 2.x.
