Geeklog index.php and comment.php cross-site scripting
|geeklog-index-comment-xss (9310)||Medium Risk|
Geeklog is vulnerable to cross-site scripting. A remote attacker could create a specially-crafted URL containing embedded script to the index.php or comment.php script, which would be executed in a 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.
Upgrade to the latest version of Geeklog (1.3.5sr1 or later), available from the Geeklog Web page. See References.
