The remote web server contains a PHP script that is prone to
cross-site scripting attacks.
The version of CuteNews installed on the remote host is vulnerable to
a cross-site-scripting (XSS) attack. A possible hacker, exploiting this
flaw, would need to be able to coerce a user to browse to a
purposefully malicious URI. Upon successful exploitation, the
attacker would be able to run code within the web-browser in the
security context of the CuteNews server.
