This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of HP OpenView Performance Insight running on the remote
host has a reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability. Input to the
'bgcolor' parameter of sendEmail.jsp is not properly sanitized. A
remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into requesting
a maliciously crafted URL, resulting in arbitrary script code
execution.

This software has several other cross-site scripting vulnerabilities
and an arbitrary code execution vulnerability, though Nessus has not
checked for those issues.
