A remote web application is vulnerable to cross-site scripting.
The remote host is running a version of phpBB older than 2.0.10.
phpBB contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting attack.
This flaw exists because the application does not validate user-supplied
input in the 'search_author' parameter.
This version is also vulnerable to an HTTP response splitting attack
that permits the injection of CRLF characters in the HTTP headers.
Upgrade to 2.0.10 or later.
