Vanilla Forums LatestComment Plugin Discussion Title HTML Injection Vulnerability

The LatestComment plugin for Vanilla Forums is prone to an HTML-injection vulnerability because it fails to sanitize user-supplied input.

Attacker-supplied HTML or JavaScript code could run in the context of the affected site, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and to control how the site is rendered to the user; other attacks are also possible.

LatestComment 1.1 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
