New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a JSP application that is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running Sun Java System Web Server, a Java application for user provisioning and identity auditing in enterprise environments.
The version of Sun Java System Web Server installed on the remote host fails to sanitize user-supplied input to its Search module before using it to generate dynamic content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to inject arbitrary HTML or script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site.
SolutionEither edit the default search web application file named 'index.jsp', which is located at '<WS-install>/lib/webapps/search/index.jsp' to remove the line containing the text 'out.println(s);' or apply the appropriate patch as described in the vendor advisory above.
