pLog register.php Multiple Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

A remote CGI is vulnerable to cross-site scripting.

Description :

The remote host is running pLog, a blogging system written in PHP.

The remote version of this software does not perform a proper validation
of user-supplied input and is, therefore, vulnerable to a cross-site
scripting attack.

To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to use the script
'register.php' to register a user profile containing HTML and script
code as the attacker's name or blog.

Regular users of the remote website would then display the HTML and/or
script code in their browser when visiting the page 'summary.php'.

Solution :

Upgrade to pLog 0.3.3 or newer.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
Public Exploit Available : true

Family: CGI abuses : XSS
