ELOG subtext cross-site scripting
|elog-subtext-xss (39828)||Medium Risk|
Electronic Logbook (ELOG) is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the subtext parameter 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 malicious data in the logbook is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
Upgrade to the latest version of ELOG (2.7.1 or later), available from the ELOG Web site. See References.
