The remote web server contains a Tomcat Servlet that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.
The remote host is running DocuShare, a web-based document management
application from Xerox.
The version of DocuShare installed on the remote host fails to sanitize
user input to the 'dsweb' servlet before including it in dynamic HTML
output. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to inject
arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be executed
within the security context of the affected site.
Note that the application is also reportedly affected by two similar
issues, although Nessus has not checked for them.
