phpLinks <= 2.1.3.1 XSS vuln.

phpLinks <= 2.1.3.1 XSS vuln.

###############################################
Vuln. discovered by : r0t
Date: 16 april 2006
vendorlink:http://sourceforge.net/projects/phplinks/
affected versions:phpLinks 2.1.3.1 and previous
###############################################

Vuln. Description:


phpLinks contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because input passed to "term" paremeter in "index.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.


example:

http://[victim]/phpLinks_path/index.php?logic=or&maximum
=&term=%22%3Cscript%3Ealert('r0t')%3C/script%3E


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