ClarkConnect proxy.php url Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2011 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is prone to a cross-
site scripting attack.

Description :

The remote web server is used by ClarkConnect, an Internet server and
gateway product, to process PHP scripts used for configuration.

The installed version includes a script, '/public/proxy.php', that
fails to sanitize user- supplied input to the 'url' parameter before
using it to generate dynamic HTML output.

An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to inject arbitrary
HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed within the
security context of the affected site.
