PHP-Fusion < 5.01 BBcode IMG Tag XSS
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 2682
SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to an HTML injection attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of PHP-Fusion which is vulnerable to a script injection flaw. The 'fusion_core.php' script is reportedly vulnerable to an attack where an attacker can inject HTML and script code through the 'BBCode IMG' tag. An attacker exploiting this flaw would create a malicious URI link and then convince an unsuspecting user to click on the link. A successful attack would yield potentially confidential data (cookies, credentials) as well as potentially execute malicious code within the context of the vulnerable server.
SolutionUpgrade to version 5.01 or higher.
