Adobe RoboHelp for Word Unspecified XSS (APSB12-04) (credentialed check)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 58171
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of RoboHelp on the remote host contains a cross-site scripting vulnerability in its WordHelp output. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser in the context of the affected site and to steal cookie-based authentication credentials.
Note that this plugin checks for a version of RoboHelp that would generate WordHelp projects with a cross-site scripting vulnerability rather than published projects with the vulnerability.
SolutionApply the patch referenced in the vendor advisory above. Once the patch is applied, all WordHelp files need to be regenerated.
