Symantec Web Gateway timer.php XSS (SYM12-006)

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A web security application hosted on the remote web server has a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote web server is hosting a version of Symantec Web Gateway
that is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks. Input to the 'l'
parameter of timer.php is not properly sanitized. An attacker could
exploit this by tricking a user into making a malicious request,
resulting in arbitrary script code execution. There are reportedly
other cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in this version of the
software, though Nessus has not checked for those issues.
