Snitz Forums 2000 type Parameter Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for type parameter cross-site scripting vulnerability in Snitz Forums 2000
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server contains an ASP script that is prone to a cross-
site scripting attack.
The remote host is running Snitz Forums 2000, a web-based electronic
forum written in ASP.
The version of Snitz Forums 2000 installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize the 'type' parameter before using it in the 'post.asp' script
to generate dynamic content. By leveraging this flaw, a possible hacker may
be able to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser
within the security context of the affected application.
