# Version: 1.2
# Tested on: Windows 10

1. Description:
This plugin shows the most trending threads. Trending thread titles aren't sanitized to user input.

2. Proof of Concept:

- Have a trending thread in the widget
- Change the thread title to a payload <script>alert('XSS')</script>
Anyone that visits the forum will execute payload
