UBB.threads debug Parameter Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Tries to exploit an XSS flaw in UBB.threads

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

The remote web server contains a PHP script that is affected by a
cross- site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of UBB.threads installed on the remote host fails to
sanitize input to the 'debug' parameter before using it in the
'ubbthreads.php' script for dynamically-generated content. Regardless
of any PHP settings, an unauthenticated attacker may be able to
exploit this flaw to inject arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser in the context of the affected web site, resulting in theft of
authentication data or other such attacks.
