SynopsisThe remote web server is hosting an application that is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack.
DescriptionThe remote web server is hosting SilverStripe CMS. The installed version of SilverStripe is earlier than 2.3.5. Such versions are potentially affected by a persistent cross-site scripting vulnerability becase the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input to the 'CommenterURL' parameter in the comment posting mechanism.
