Description

Vulnerability Description

Invision Power Board contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the 'm', 'y' or 'd' variables upon submission to the Calendar action via the index.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

Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds available to correct this issue.
