Multiple Horde products administration interface cross-site scripting
|horde-admininterface-xss (54817)||Medium Risk|
Multiple Horde products, when used with Firefox browsers, are vulnerable to cross-site scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the administration interface. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using 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.
