Gossamer Links < 3.0.4 Multiple Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in Gossamer Links < 3.0.4
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains CGI scripts that are prone to cross-
site scripting attacks.
The remote host is running Gossamer Links, a web links management tool
from Gossamer Threads and written in Perl.
The installed version of Gossamer Links fails to properly sanitize
user-supplied input to various parameters of the 'user.cgi' and
'add.cgi' scripts, which are used by an administrator. 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.
