Apache Tomcat / Geronimo Sample Script cal2.jsp time Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a JSP application that is prone to a
cross-site scripting flaw.

Description :

The remote host appears to be running Geronimo, an open source J2EE
server from the Apache Software Foundation.

The version of Geronimo installed on the remote host includes a JSP
application that fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'time'
parameter before using it to generate a dynamic webpage. An attacker
can exploit this flaw to cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be
executed in a user's browser within the context of the affected web
site.
