Description

Vulnerability Description

Annuaire (Directory) contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the Comment Field (COMMENTAIRE variable) upon submission to the inscription.php script. 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.

Solution Description

The vendor has discontinued this product and therefore has no patch or upgrade that mitigates this problem. It is recommended that an alternate software package be used in its place.
