This script is Copyright (C) 2016-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

The version of Adobe RoboHelp installed on the remote Windows host is
affected by an unspecified cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability
due to improper validation of input before returning it to users. An
unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially
crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser
session.

Note that Nessus has not checked for the patch to file layout.js in
each of the project folders for the RoboHelp projects on the host.
