Oracle BPM Process Administrator tips.jsp context Parameter XSS

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The Oracle Business Process Manager (BPM) Suite's Process
Administrator running on the remote host contains a JSP script -
'webconsole/faces/faces/faces/jsf/tips.jsp' - that fails to sanitize
user input to the 'context' parameter before using it to generate
dynamic HTML output.

An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to inject arbitrary
HTML or script code into a user's browser to be executed within the
security context of the affected site.
