Academic Web Tools multiple cross-site scripting
|academicwebtools-multiple-xss (43178)||Medium Risk|
Academic Web Tools is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the login.php, htmlarea.js.php, and room.php scripts. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the glb_sid 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.
No remedy available as of September 1, 2014.
