By injecting HTML code into the <body> tag of the description page, when submitting website, it may be possible to cause an administrator to edit or delete database entries. This issue will occur when an unsuspecting administrator loads the submitted description. This vulnerability also affects the 'edit.php' script.

Due to invalid sanitization of user-supplied input by the 'help.php' script, it may be possible for an attacker to steal another users cookie information or other sensitive data. This issue can be exploited by constructing a malicious URL containing embedded script code as a 'help.php' parameter. When an unsuspecting user follows the link sensitive information, such as cookie-based authentication credentials may be obtained by the attacker.
