if (!defined('ADMIN_FILE') && !file_exists('includes/nukesentinel.php')) {
foreach ($_GET as $sec_key => $secvalue) {
if ((eregi("<[^>]*script*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*object*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*iframe*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*applet*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*meta*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*style*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*form*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*img*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*onmouseover*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*body*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("([^>]*"?[^)]*)", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi(""", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("forum_admin", $sec_key)) ||
(eregi("inside_mod", $sec_key))) {
die ($htmltags);
}
}

foreach ($_POST as $secvalue) {
if ((eregi("<[^>]*onmouseover*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]script*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]*body*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue)) ||
(eregi("<[^>]style*"?[^>]*>", $secvalue))) {
die ($htmltags);
}
}
}

This functions deletes from input html tags like:

- <script>
- <object>
- <iframe>
- <applet>
- <meta>
- <style>
- <form>
- <img>
- <onmouseover>
- <body>

etc.

Ok. But if we sent to script:

# <iframe src=http://cxsecurity? < Hi

The function don't find wrong tags.
And broswer read this

"<iframe src=http://cxsecurity? < Hi"

and change "<" to ">".
Result:

# <iframe src=http://cxsecurity? > Hi

I have checked this in IE, Mozilla, Opera, Links, Lynx etc.
Only don't work in konqueror.

- --- 2. XSS ---

2.0 http://[HOST]/[DIR]/modules.php?name=Search

Insert:

<iframe src=http://cxsecurity.com?phpnuke79 <

And have you xss.

2.1 http://[HOST]/[DIR]/modules.php?name=Web_Links

Insert:

<iframe src=http://cxsecurity.com?phpnuke79 <

and more.

- --- 3. How to fix ---

Change xss filter in mainfile.php
