PunBB profile.php Input Validation Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Detects input validation vulnerabilities in PunBB's profile.php
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by
several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
According to its banner, the version of PunBB installed on the remote
host fails to properly sanitize user input to the script 'profile.php'
through the 'email' and 'Jabber' parameters. A possible hacker could
exploit this flaw to embed malicious script or HTML code in his
profile. Then, whenever someone browses that profile, the code would
be executed in that person's browser in the context of the web site,
enabling the attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
