SkyOut has reported some vulnerabilities in SF-Shoutbox, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed to the parameters "nick" and "shout" are not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which is executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site if malicious data is viewed.
The vulnerability is reported in version 1.4. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
