slickMsg - Cross-Site Scripting / HTML Injection

EDB-ID:

35111

CVE:

N/A


Platform:

PHP

Published:

slickMsg is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability and multiple HTML-injection vulnerabilities because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in dynamically generated content.

Successful exploits will allow attacker-supplied HTML and script code to run in the context of the affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials or to control how the site is rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible.

slickMsg 0.7-alpha is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
