4) Description of Vulnerability

Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in Baby Gekko, which 
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting 
attacks.

Input passed via the URL to e.g. index.php or includes/errors/404.php 
is not properly sanitised in includes/errors/404.php before being 
returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML 
and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected 
site.

Successful exploitation requires that the victim uses a browser that 
does not URL-encode the request (e.g. Internet Explorer 6).

5) Solution 

Update to version 1.2.2d.
