Sun Java System Web Server advanced search cross-site scripting
|javasystem-advancedsearch-xss (42624)||Medium Risk|
Sun Java System Web Server is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the advanced search feature. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using an unknown parameter in a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
