Henrique Montenegro has discovered a vulnerability in the Pinboard theme for WordPress, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed via the "tab" GET parameter to wp-admin/themes.php (when "page" is set to "pinboard_options") is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.0.6. Other versions may also be affected.
No official solution is currently available.
