Description: Truste's 'ivalidate.php' is used to validate "trusted"
sites. Whilst the script does add slashes to quotes and closes
<script> and <style> tags, there are a number of HTML tags it does not
strip, including <linK>,<div>,<iframe>.
This leaves the site open to attack from phishers wanting to make
their site appear "trusted".

addresses 5 days ago, they are yet to respond or fix the problem.
