A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way the Red Hat
Satellite web interface performed sanitization of notes for registered
systems. A remote authenticated Red Hat Satellite user could create a
malicious note that, when viewed by a victim, could execute arbitrary
web script with the privileges of the user viewing that note.

Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the Red Hat
Satellite web interface. A remote attacker could provide a specially
crafted link that, when visited by an authenticated Red Hat Satellite
user, would lead to arbitrary web script execution in the context of
the user's web interface session. (CVE-2013-1871, CVE-2013-4415)

An HTTP header injection flaw was found in the way the Red Hat
Satellite web interface processed the return URL parameter for all
HTTP GET requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct
cross-site scripting (XSS) and HTTP response splitting attacks against
users visiting the site. (CVE-2013-1869)
