Vuln. Description:

PHP JackKnife contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to "sKeywords" parameter in " DisplayResults.php" isn't properly sanitised before being returned to the user. 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.


/Search/DisplayResults.php?DOMAIN_Link=& iSearchID=292&sKeywords=%22%3E%3Cscri pt%3Ealert%28%27r0t%27%29%3C%2Fscript%3E

Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
