Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains several PHP scripts that are prone to
multiple flaws, including possible arbitrary PHP code execution.

Description :

According to its version number, the remote host is running a version
of CuteNews that permits a possible hacker to inject arbitrary script through
the variables 'X-FORWARDED-FOR' or 'CLIENT-IP' when adding a comment.
On one hand, a possible hacker can inject a client-side script to be
executed by an administrator's browser when he/she chooses to edit the
added comment. On the other, a possible hacker with local access could
leverage this flaw to run arbitrary PHP code in the context of the web
server user.

Additionally, it suffers from a cross-site scripting flaw involving
the 'search.php' script.
