A vulnerability has been reported in Chameleon Social Networking, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed via the "thread_title" and "thread_description" parameters to forum_new_topic.php (when "cmd" is set to "post" and "forum_id" is set to a valid id) when creating a topic is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is being viewed.
Solution: Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
