Vulnerability Description

Red Ant Development's Colony CMS contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack.

This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.
