Mariano Nunez Di Croce has reported a vulnerability in N-Stealth Security Scanner, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
The vulnerability is cause due to the lack of sanitation of the Server Header value returned in the HTTP response of a web site before using it to generate a HTML-based vulnerability report.
