Symantec Web Security (SWS) HTML tags cross-site scripting
|symantec-html-xss (31750)||Medium Risk|
Symantec Web Security (SWS) is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using HTML tags to inject malicious script into an error message or a blocked page message 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.
