Description

Vulnerability Description

Web Wiz Forums contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the "find" variable upon submission to the forum_members.asp 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

Upgrade to version 7.5 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
