Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a web control that could allow information disclosure.

Description

The installed version of the Microsoft Report Viewer control fails to properly validate parameters within a data source, which results in a reflected (or non-persistent) cross-site scripting vulnerability.

If an attacker can trick a user into clicking on a link to a malicious server, he could inject a client-side script in the user's browser that in turn could be used to spoof content or disclose sensitive information.

Solution

Microsoft has released a set of patches for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 SP1 and the Microsoft Report Viewer 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package.
