Steven Christey discovered a cross site scripting vulnerability in mhonarc, a mail to HTML converter. Carefully crafted message headers can introduce cross site scripting when mhonarc is configured to display all headers lines on the web. However, it is often useful to restrict the displayed header lines to To, From and Subject, in which case the vulnerability cannot be exploited.
