I. BACKGROUND
phpMyChat is an easy-to-install, easy-to-use multi-room chat based on PHP
and a database, supporting MySQL, PostgreSQL, and ODBC.

II. DESCRIPTION
phpMyChat 0.14.6 start_page.css.php, style.css.php, users_popupL.php are
prone to Cross-site Scripting(XSS) vulnerability. A remote attacker could
get cookie-based credential information with a specially-crafted URL or
execute arbitrary web script or HTML.

IV. AUTHOR

V. AFFECTED SOFTWARE
phpMyChat 0.14.6 is confirmed to be affected.
Older versions are not verified.

VI. ANALYSIS
in start_page.css.php and style.css.php
if (!isset($medium) || $medium == "") $medium = 10;
$large = round(1.4 * $medium);
$small = round(0.8 * $medium);
Parameter $medium is not carefully validated.

in users_popupL.php
<A HREF="<?php echo("$From?Ver=L&L=$L"); ?>" TARGET="_blank"><?php
echo(L_CHAT); ?></A>
