phpWebLog Cross Site Scripting

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Searches for the existence of a phpWebLog XSS

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

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

Description :

The remote host is running phpWebLog, a news and content management
system written in PHP.

Due to improper filtering done by 'search.php' a remote attacker can
cause the phpWebLog product to include arbitrary HTML and/or JavaScript.
A possible hacker may use this bug to perform a cross site scripting attack
using the remote host. There are also reportedly two flaws that, if
PHP's 'register_globals' setting is enabled, permit for local file
disclosure and arbitrary code execution.
