ht://Dig 3.2 Htsearch Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability. CVE-2007-6110. Webapps exploit for cgi platform

ht://Dig is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied data.

Exploiting this issue allows an attacker to execute arbitrary HTML or script code in a user's browser session in the context of an affected site. This may allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

This issue affects ht://Dig 3.2.0b6; other versions may also be vulnerable.
