Caucho Resin file parameter cross-site scripting
|caucho-resin-file-xss (43367)||Medium Risk|
Caucho Resin is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the viewfile command within the Resin documentation. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the file 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.
Upgrade to the latest version of Caucho Resin (3.0.25 or 3.1.4 or later), available from the Caucho Web site. See References.
