Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for type parameter cross-site scripting vulnerability in Snitz Forums 2000

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains an ASP script that is prone to a cross-
site scripting attack.

Description :

The remote host is running Snitz Forums 2000, a web-based electronic
