conor.e.buckley has discovered a vulnerability in Land Down Under, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed to the "neventtext" parameter in "events.php" when adding an event isn't properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to inject arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in an administrator's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious event is viewed for approval.
The vulnerability has been confirmed in version 801. Prior versions are reportedly also affected. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
