e107 submitnews.php XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A PHP script on the remote web server is affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of e107 on the remote host is affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability because the 'submitnews.php' script fails to
properly sanitize user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit
this by tricking a user into making a specially crafted POST request.

There are reportedly several other cross-site scripting and SQL
injection vulnerabilities in this version of e107, though Nessus has
not checked for them.
