DotNetNuke default.aspx cross-site scripting
|dotnetnuke-default-xss (29048)||Medium Risk|
DotNetNuke is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the default.aspx script. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the 'error' parameter to inject malicious script into a Web page which would be executed in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the page is viewed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
Upgrade to the latest version of DotNetNuke (version 3.3.5 or 4.3.5 or later), available from the DotNetNuke Web site. See References.
