Security Advisory

1) Cross-site scripting

Severity: Low

CVSSv3: 5.3 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2010-1164

CWE-ID: CWE-79 - Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data passed via "afterURL" HTTP GET parameter to screenshot-redirecter.jsp script. A remote attacker can create a specially crated link, trick the victim into clicking it and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in victim’s browser in context of vulnerable website.

Successful exploitation of the vulnerability may allow an attacker to gain access to potentially sensitive data.
