Checks for PhpGroupWare version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host seems to be running PhpGroupWare, a multi-user groupware
suite written in PHP.

This version has been reported prone to HTML injection vulnerabilities
through 'index.php'. These issues present themself due to a lack of
sufficient input validation performed on form fields used by
PHPGroupWare modules.

A malicious attacker may inject arbitrary HTML and script code using
these form fields that may be incorporated into dynamically generated
web content.
