The remote web application may be affected by a cross-site scripting
According to its self-reported version number, the instance of Phorum
5.2.x hosted on the remote website is earlier than 5.2.17 and
therefore may be affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
The parameter 'real_name' is not properly sanitized by the script
'control.php' before it is passed to the user. This could be
exploited to inject arbitrary HTML or script code into a user's
browser session in the context of the affected site.
Note that Nessus did not actually test for the flaw but instead has
relied on the version in Phorum's login page.

Update to Phorum version 5.2.17 or later.
