BEA Plumtree portal/server.pt name Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains an application affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of the Plumtree portal included with BEA AquaLogic
Interaction / Plumtree Foundation and installed on the remote host
fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'name' parameter of the
'portal/server.pt' script before using it to generate dynamic HTML
output. An unauthenticated attacker can exploit this to inject
arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed
within the security context of the affected site.
