Horde NLS.php Language Selection new_lang Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Horde installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'new_lang' parameter before using it in the
'framework/NLS/NLS.php' script to generate dynamic content. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to
inject arbitrary HTML or script code into a user's browser to be
executed within the security context of the affected site.
