Summary:
This host is installed with MantisBT and is prone to a cross-site-scripting vulnerability.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The flaw is due to: - An input validation error for PATH_INFO in the View Filters page (view_filters_page.php). - An input validation error in the Edit Filter page(manage_filter_edit_page.php).
