The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data passed via the repo name in the "repo_delete.php" in Delete Repository page. A remote attacker can trick the victim to follow a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user's browser in context of vulnerable website.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.
