2) Input passed to the "message" form field parameter when posting a message or a reply is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is then executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when malicious data is viewed.
Successful exploitation requires that certain HTML tags (e.g. <img>) are allowed.
The vulnerabilities are confirmed in version 1.6. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 1.646, which fixes #2 and some affected input in #1. Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
