JForum jforum.page start Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of JForum installed on the remote host fails to properly
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'start' parameter of the
'jforum.page' script. An attacker may be able to 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.

Note that the application is also likely to be affected by other
cross-site scripting vulnerabilities involving the same script but
different parameters.
