This script is Copyright (C) 2014-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

A software development application installed on the remote host is
affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The version of Oracle JDeveloper installed on the remote host is
missing a security patch. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site
scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the Application Development Framework
(ADF) Faces subcomponent due to improper encoding of URLs that are
specified as a target for the 'goButton' component. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary
script code in a user's browser session.
