    A vulnerability exists in the test.php script of OmniHTTPd. The script
    makes a classic coding error -- trusting unsanitized user input. The query
    string and cookie values are returned unfiltered. Of most concern, of
    course, is the query string:

    http://localhost/test.php?%3CSCRIPT%3Ealert%28document.URL%29%3C%2FSCRIPT%3E
    =x

    The impact of this vulnerability will vary by site. A production site would
    most likely *not* have the sample scripts installed, but it would be wise to
    check.

    "The reason the mainstream is thought
    of as a stream is because it is
    so shallow."
