SecurityCenter devform.php message Parameter XSS

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


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Tenable Network Security SecurityCenter installed on the
remote host contains the 'devform.php' script. This PHP script is
affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability because the application
does not properly validate user-supplied input to the 'message'
parameter. An attacker could leverage this to inject arbitrary HTML and
script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security
context of the affected site.
