Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote server runs a version of ICECast which is as old as or older

to create a malicious link containing script code that will be executed
in the browser of an unsuspecting user when followed.
This may facilitate the theft of cookie-based authentication credentials
as well as other attacks.
