SAP BusinessObjects viewError.jsp 'error' Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A web application on the remote host has a cross-site scripting
vulnerability.

Description :

The version of SAP BusinessObjects installed on the remote web server
has a cross-site scripting vulnerability. Input passed to the
'error' parameter of '/PerformanceManagement/jsp/viewError.jsp' is
not properly sanitized.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into
requesting a specially crafted URL, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary script code.

This version of BusinessObjects reportedly has several other
vulnerabilities, though Nessus has not checked for those issues.
