PScript PForum < 1.26 User Profile XSS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is running a vulnerable version of PForum, a web forum software implemented in PHP.

Description

The remote host is running a vulnerable version of PForum, a web forum software implemented in PHP. It is reported that versions prior 1.26 are vulnerable to cross-site scripting (XSS). An attacker may include malicious HTML in the 'AIM ID' and 'IRC Server' fields of his profile. This malicious code may be rendered by a victim's browser displaying the attacker profile. It may permit the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or to exploit latent security flaws in web browsers.

Solution

Upgrade to PScript PForum 1.26 or higher.
