Novell GroupWise < 7.03HP2 / 8.0HP1 WebAccess Multiple XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a script that is prone to a cross-site
scripting attack.

Description :

The version of Novell GroupWise WebAccess installed on the remote host
fails to sanitize user-supplied input via a POST request to the
'' parameter of the '/gw/webacc' script before using it to
generate 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

Note that this install is also likely affected by other cross-site
scripting and cross-site request forgery issues in its WebAccess
component as well as a buffer overflow in its GWIA component, although
Nessus has not checked for them.
