Horde Turba Contact Manager common-footer.inc Parent Frame Page Title XSS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 18132


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


According to its version, the remote installation of Horde fails to fully sanitize user-supplied input when setting the parent frame's page title by JavaScript in 'templates/common-footer.inc'. By leveraging this flaw, an attacker may be able to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed in the context of the affected website, thereby resulting in the theft of session cookies and similar attacks.


Upgrade to Horde 2.2.8 or later.
