DESCRIPTION:
Riyaz Ahemed Walikar has discovered a vulnerability in Joomla, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.

"com_sections", "com_categories", "com_frontpage", "com_messages",
"com_banners", "com_contact", "com_menus" when "task" is set to
"view", "com_newsfeeds", "com_poll", "com_weblinks", "com_modules",
or "com_plugins") is not properly sanitised before being returned to
