Software: PHP-pastebin 2.x
A vulnerability has been discovered in PHP-pastebin, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct script insertion attacks.
Input passed via the "title" POST parameter to index.php when creating a paste 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.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.1. Other versions may also be affected.
Edit the source code to ensure that input is properly sanitised.
