Description

The LogAnalyzer install hosted on the remote web server is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to a failure to properly sanitize user input to the 'highlight' parameter of the 'index.php' script. An attacker can exploit this issue to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site.
