Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities allow a third party to manipulate the content or behaviour of a web application in a user's browser, without compromising the underlying system.
Different Cross-Site Scripting related vulnerabilities are also classified under this category, including "script insertion" and "cross-site request forgery".
Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities are often used against specific users of a website to steal their credentials or to conduct spoofing attacks.
Gjoko Krstic has discovered multiple vulnerabilities in Baby Gekko, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed via the "username", "email_address", "password", "password_verify", "firstname", "lastname", and "verification_code" parameters to users/action/register is not properly sanitised in apps/users/registration.template.php before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.2.0. Other versions may also be affected.
Update to version 1.2.0c.
