Joomla! 1.5.20 <= Cross Site Scripting (XSS) Vulnerability

1. OVERVIEW The Joomla! web application was vulnerable to Cross Site Scripting vulnerability. 2. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION Joomla is a free and open source content management system (CMS) for publishing content on the World Wide Web and intranets. It comprises a model–view–controller (MVC) Web application framework that can also be used independently.

By default, DLLHijackAuditKit scans all associated file extensions with all installed applications in default timer of 3 seconds. DLLHijackAuditor from SecurityXploded is great for targetting only one application. However, according to our testing, it sometimes misses flaws. So, we tried to save time by adding timer support and regex support to our favorite HDM's DLLHijackAuditKit. How is useful? Sleep timer - for some applications like Adobe CS, which takes a few seconds to reach fully usable state               You do need to look at both analyze.js and audit.js for the two variables below.               You should adjust them depending on the
