JAWS Glossary Gadget Multiple XSS

Copyright (C) 2005-2012 Josh Zlatin-Amishav


Synopsis :

A remote web application is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Description :

The remote host is running JAWS, a content management system written in
PHP.
The remote version of this software does not perform a proper validation
of user-supplied input to several variables used in the
'GlossaryModel.php' script, and is, therefore, vulnerable to cross-site
scripting attacks.
