Description

The version of Moodle installed on the remote host is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities due to the application failing to properly sanitize user-supplied input to multiple parameters. An attacker can leverage these vulnerabilities to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site.

Note that Nessus has not tested for each issue, but has checked for patched JavaScript files to verify a patched version is running.
