Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains several PHP scripts that are prone to
cross-site scripting attacks.


The remote version of WordPress is vulnerable to cross-site scripting
issues due to a failure of the application to properly sanitize user-

As a result of this vulnerability, it is possible for a remote

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.
