An application running on the remote web server has an HTML injection
The version of ViewVC hosted on the remote host is vulnerable to a
HTML injection attack. Requesting a URL with an invalid parameter
name in the query string generates an error message that echoes back
the parameter name. Any URLs included in the invalid parameter name
become hyperlinks. A remote attacker could trick a user into
requesting a malicious URL to facilitate a social engineering attempt.
According to some reports, there is also an unrelated cross-site
scripting issue in this version of ViewVC, though Nessus has not
checked for that.
