bloofoxCMS 0.3.5 'search' Parameter Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability. CVE-2009-4522. Webapps exploit for php platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/36700/info

bloofoxCMS is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because the application fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input passed through the 'search' parameter.

An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may let the attacker steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

This issue affects bloofoxCMS 0.3.5; other versions may be vulnerable as well.
