IBM Lotus Sametime client mouse-over action cross-site scripting
|sametime-client-mouseover-xss (39726)||Medium Risk|
IBM Lotus Sametime client is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using a specially-crafted URL to inject malicious script into an instant message, which would be executed in a victim's Sametime client once the message is viewed and a mouse-over action is performed. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
