Zimbra Collaboration Server aspell.php dictionary Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server hosts a PHP script that is affected by a cross-
site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of the Zimbra Collaboration Server spell check service
installed on the remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input
to the 'dictionary' parameter of the 'aspell.php' script. An attacker
may be able to leverage this to inject arbitrary HTML and script code
into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the
affected site.
