The file admin-news-articles.php calls the function printPublishIconLink
which generates HTML from data stored in the $_GET super global, this can be
used to generate a XSS attack or more seriously, as a admin user need to be
logged in to access the page admin-news-articles.php, a cookie stealing

Example code:

Suggested fix:

Sanitize the $_GET super global on lines 1637 through 1641 in
zenpage-admin-functions.php file
