JAHx121 - PHP Shell Detector Cross site scripting

20120831 - Justanotherhacker.com : PHP Shell Detector - Cross site scripting
JAHx121 - http://www.justanotherhacker.com/advisories/JAHx121.txt

PHP Shell Detector is a php script that helps you find and identify php shells. It also has
a "web shells" signature database that helps to identify "web shell" up to 99%. By using the
latest javascript and css technologies, php shell detector has a light weight and friendly
interface. The main features is that if you're not sure about a suspicious file, you may send
it to the websecure.co.il team.  After submitting your file, it will be inspected and if
there are any threats, it will be inserted into a "php shell detector" web shells signature
database and the next time this file will be recognized positively.

Type: Cross Site Scripting
Severity: Low
Release: Full
CVE: None
Vendor: Emposha - http://www.emposha.com/

Create a payload out of a file detected by the PSD script, ie:

Then scan the directory containing the renamed file.
