phpFreeForum is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the error.php and menu.php scripts. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the message, nickname, or randomid parameter in a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
