|ipb-profile-xss (36589)||Medium Risk|
Invision Power Board (IP.Board) is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the user profile. If character sets other than iso-8859-1 or utf-8 are enabled, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using unspecified fields to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
