CVSS Scoring System
The CVSS score is: 5.5
Base Score: 6.7
Temporal Score: 5.5
We used the following values to calculate the scores:

A data array is created in lib_ajax.php using values from a form field in a POST
request. The parameters rs and rsargs are not validated and thus
it is possible to inject code.
