Novell GroupWise WebAccess Directory.Item Parameters XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote host has an application that is affected by a cross-site
scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Novell GroupWise installed on the remote Windows host
is earlier than 8.0.2 HP3. It is, therefore, reportedly affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability because the application fails to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'Directory.Item.name' and
'Directory.Item.displayName' parameters.

A remote attacker may be able to exploit this vulnerability to execute
arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the
context of the affected site.
