The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.
The version of WordPress installed on the remote host fails to
completely sanitize input to the the 'Host' request header before
using it in the 'self_link()' function in 'wp-includes/feed.php' to
generate dynamic HTML output. An attacker may be able to leverage
this to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to
be executed within the security context of the affected site.
