ForumKIT "members" parameter cross-site scripting
|forumkit-members-xss (18880)||Medium Risk|
ForumKIT is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input in the 'members' parameter. A remote attacker could embed malicious script in a specially-crafted HTTP request, which would be executed in the victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting site, once the link is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
No remedy available as of July 1, 2014.
