Burning Board pms.php Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for cross-site scripting vulnerability in Burning Board's pms.php script
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP script which is vulnerable to a cross
site scripting vulnerability.
The version of Burning Board or Burning Board Lite installed on the
remote host may be prone to cross-site scripting attacks due to its
failure to properly sanitize input passed to the 'folderid' parameter
of the 'pms.php' script. A possible hacker may be able to exploit this flaw
to cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be run in a user's browser
within the context of the affected website.
