Microsoft SharePoint Server default.aspx PATH_INFO cross-site scripting
|sharepoint-default-pathinfo-xss (34343)||Medium Risk|
Microsoft SharePoint Server 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 PATH_INFO string 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.
