This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server runs a script vulnerable to cross-site scripting
attacks.

Description :

The remote host runs Outlook Web Access.

Outlook Web Access is a service for Microsoft Exchange, that provides
web-based email, calendaring and contact management to end users.

The remote version of Outlook Web Access is vulnerable to a cross-site
scripting attack that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary java
script in the security context of a victim using this service.

To exploit this flaw, an attacker would need to send a specially crafted
message to a victim using Outlook Web Access. When the victim reads the
message, the bug in Outlook Web Access triggers and cause the execution
of the script sent by the attacker.
