This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Stefan Esser of e-matters discovered that PHP's strip_tags() function
would ignore certain characters during parsing of tags, allowing these
tags to pass through. Select browsers could then parse these tags,
possibly allowing cross-site scripting attacks.
