Description

Vulnerability Description

PHPX contains a flaw that allows a remote HTML code injection. This flaw exists because the application does not validate subject variables in Personal Messages and Forum. This could allow a user to embed 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 3.2.4 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
