GForge account/verify.php confirm_hash Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running GForge, a web-based project for
collaborative software development.

The version of GForge installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'confirm_hash' parameter of the
'account/verify.php' script before using it to generate dynamic
output. 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.

This version may have several other vulnerabilities related to SQL
injection and cross-site scripting, especially if the remote host is
running a Debian build of GForge. Nessus has not checked for these
issues.
