Synopsis :

The remote Windows host is affected by a cross-site scripting
vulnerability.

The remote Windows host is missing a security update. It is,
therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due
to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated,
remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to
execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
