Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for message content script injection vulnerability in BasiliX

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains PHP scripts that are prone to cross-site
scripting attacks.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running a BasiliX version 1.1.0 or lower.
Such versions are vulnerable to cross-scripting attacks since they do
not filter HTML tags when showing a message. As a result, a possible hacker
can include arbitrary HTML and script code in a message and have that
code executed by the user's browser when it is viewed.
