MODx < 0.9.1a Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to exploit a XSS flaw in MODx

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is susceptible to
multiple issues.

Description :

The remote host is running MODx, a content management system written
in PHP.

The version of MODx installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
input to the 'id' parameter of the 'index.php' script before using it
to generate dynamic HTML output. An unauthenticated attacker can
exploit this to inject arbitrary script and HTML into a user's

Also, the same lack of input sanitation reportedly can be leveraged to
launch directory traversal attacks against the affected application,
although exploitation may only be successful if the affected host is
running Windows and if PHP's 'magic_quotes_gpc' setting is disabled.
