SynopsisThe remote host is vulnerable to an HTML Injection attack.
DescriptionThe remote host is running CopperMine Gallery, a set of PHP scripts to handle galleries of pictures. There is a flaw in this version of Coppermine Gallery. Specifically, the x-forwarded-for variable is not properly parsed by the application. An attacker exploiting this flaw can inject HTML or script into a browser session.
