When editing a thread the user is given to the option to convert the thread to a link.
2. Proof of Concept:
- Edit a thread or post you've made
- At the bottom of the edit page in the Thread Link box input the following <a """><SCRIPT>alert("XSS")</SCRIPT>">
- Now visit the forum your thread/post exists in to see the alert.
The plugin has since been removed after notifying the author.
Patch in line 83:
$thread['tlink'] = ($thread['tlink']);
$thread['tlink'] = htmlspecialchars_uni($thread['tlink']);
