The remote web server is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack.
The remote web server fails to sanitize the contents of an 'Expect'
request header before using it to generate dynamic web content. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to
launch cross-site scripting attacks against the affected service,
perhaps through specially crafted ShockWave (SWF) files.
