Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

The DigiTrust Group reports :

When creating a new database, a malicious user can use a client-side
Web proxy to place malicious code in the db parameter of the POST
request. Since db_create.php does not properly sanitize user-supplied
input, an administrator could face a persistent XSS attack when the
database names are displayed.
