Newscoop multiple scripts cross-site scripting
|newscoop-multiple-xss (74781)||Medium Risk|
Newscoop is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the ad.php, password_check_token.php and login.php scripts. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the Back, error_code, token, f_email and f_user_name parameters 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.
