paBox Post Icon HTML Injection Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for post icon HTML injection vulnerability in paBox

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running paBox, a web application written in PHP.

The remote version of paBox installed on the remote host does not
properly sanitize input supplied through the 'posticon' parameter used
to select a 'smilie' for a post. By exploiting this flaw, a possible hacker
can inject HTML and script code into the browser of users who view the
affected post, potentially stealing authentication cookies and
controlling how the affected application is rendered.
