Apache Tomcat Sample App cal2.jsp time Parameter XSS (CVE-2009-0781)



The remote host is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack


The remote web server includes an example JSP application, 'cal2.jsp' that fails to sanitize user-supplied input before using it to generate dynamic content. An unauthenticated remote 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.


Either undeploy the Tomcat examples web application, apply the appropriate patch referenced in the vendor advisory, or upgrade to Tomcat 6.0.19 / 5.5.28 / 4.1.40 when available.
