  • Vulnerability: Cross Site Scripting


Inf08 is a valid XHTML 1.0 Strict / CSS 2.1 theme ported from the free CSS template. The theme contains an arbitrary script injection vulnerability (XSS) due to the fact that it fails to sanitize user supplied taxonomy vocabulary names before display. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have a role with the permission "administer taxonomy".
