cformsII Plugin for WordPress 'rs' Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is vulnerable to a
cross-site scripting attack.

Description :

The version of the cformsII plugin for WordPress hosted on the remote
web server fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'rs' parameter
of the 'lib_ajax.php' script before using it to generate dynamic HTML

An attacker can leverage this issue to inject arbitrary HTML or script
code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context
of the affected site.

Note that the install is also likely to be vulnerable to a similar
cross-site scripting attack involving the 'rsargs' parameter, although
Nessus has not checked for this particular issue.
