mcms-manuallogin-reasontxt-xss (10318) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk


Microsoft Content Management Server (MCMS) is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the ManualLogin.asp script. A remote attacker could create a specially-crafted URL request to the ManualLogin.asp script containing malicious script embedded within the REASONTXT parameter, which would be executed in the victim's Web browser within the security context of the MCMS server, once the victim attempts to login. An attacker could use this vulnerability to modify Web content, hijack a user's session and steal their personal information, spoof Web pages, or access the targeted Web sites cookies.
