Vuln. Description:

Amaxus contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to "change" paremter 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.





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