phpSysInfo < 2.5 Multiple Script XSS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack.

Description

The remote host is running phpSysInfo, a PHP script that monitors and reports on local *nix system resources utilization. This version of phpSysInfo is vulnerable to a remote Cross-Site Scripting attack. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a user to browse a malicious URI. Successful exploitation could lead to a loss of integrity as code would be executed by the browser within the security context of the vulnerable web site.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2.5 or higher.
