NQcontent is a dynamic web content management system that extends traditional CMS capabilities to include a powerful application development and integration framework. NQcontent will revolutionise the speed and ease of delivery of your internet, intranet, extranet and portals, seamlessly integrating and future proofing your online investment.
NQcontent contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to search module paremters 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.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
