Microsoft IIS administrative Web pages cross-site scripting
|iis-admin-pages-xss (10501)||Medium Risk|
Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is vulnerable to cross-site scripting caused by improper input validation by the administrative Web pages. A remote attacker in control of a Web site could create a URL link embedded with malicious script to one of the affected IIS administrative pages. Once the victim clicks the malicious URL, the script would then be executed in the victim's Web browser within the security context of the site running IIS. This could allow the attacker to steal cookies and possibly other information from the vulnerable Web server.
