The remote web server contains an ASP.NET application that is affected
by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
The version of DNN installed on the remote host is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability due to a failure to properly
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'Search' parameter of the
'SearchResults.aspx' script before using it to generate dynamic HTML
output. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by
tricking a user into making a maliciously crafted request, to
execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
This plugin checks for a vulnerability that is similar to but
different from CVE-2009-4110.
