AutoIndex search Parameter Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for search parameter cross-site scripting vulnerability in AutoIndex

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script which is vulnerable to a cross
site scripting issue.

Description :

The remote host is running AutoIndex, a free PHP script for indexing
files in a directory.

The installed version of AutoIndex fails to properly sanitize
user-supplied input to the 'search' parameter of the 'index.php'
script. By leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker may be able to cause
arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed by a user's browser
within the context of the affected application, leading to cookie
theft and similar attacks.
