Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Joomla! installed on the remote host has multiple,
persistent cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the JA_Purity
template. Injected HTML or script code is stored in the user's
cookie, making the attack persistent for the entire session.
A remote attacker could leverage this to trick an unsuspecting user
into requesting a malicious URL, which could be used to steal

vulnerabilities that Nessus has not tested for.
