Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a CGI application that suffers from
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The '' CGI is installed. This version is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability. This issue is due to a failure of

As a result of this vulnerability, it is possible for a remote
attacker to create a malicious link containing script code that will
be executed in the browser of an unsuspecting user when followed.

Another flaw in YaBB may allow a possible hacker to execute malicious
administrative commands on the remote host by sending malformed IMG

administrator to view one of the posts.
