MS06-017: FrontPage fpadmdll.dll Multiple Parameter XSS (917627)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 21247


The remote web server contains a server extension that is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


The version of Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 / SharePoint Team Services on the remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to the 'operation', 'command', and 'name' parameters to file /_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll before using the input to generate dynamic HTML. A remote attacker can exploit this issue to cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed in a user's browser session in the context of the affected website.


Microsoft has released a set of patches for Frontapage 2002 for XP and 2003.
