RE: Open Bulletin Board javascript bug.

  OpenBB is free php-based forum.  

  [img]javasCript:alert('Hello world.')[/img]

  Vulnerable systems:
  All versions of Open Bulletin Board including v.1.0.0 

  Immune systems:

  All url's in [img] tags should start with "http://"; 

I had actually informed them about this bug a long time ago and
they informed me they were working on a patch. This was 2 months
ago. Since you posted this to bugtraq they finally released a patch.
The patch can be found here:

For any who care about the technical details of the patch,  they did
NOT filter [img] tags so that they start with http:// as suggested. They
filtered javascript: and some other hex codes. Chances are it is still
vulnerable, and I informed them of this, they don't seem to care.
