A PHP script hosted on the remote web server is affected by a cross- site scripting vulnerability.


The version of TaskFreak! on the remote host is affected by a cross- site scripting vulnerability involving the 'tznMessage' parameter of the 'logout.php' script. A remote attacker may be able to exploit this by tricking a user into making a specially crafted GET request.

There is also reportedly a SQL injection vulnerability in this version of TaskFreak!, though Nessus has not checked for it.
