Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59360
SynopsisThe remote web server contains a Java application affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Liferay Portal hosted on the remote web server fails to properly sanitize input to the 'uploadProgressId' parameter of the 'upload_progress_poller.jsp' script.
An attacker can leverage this issue by enticing a user to follow a malicious URL, causing attacker-specified script code to run inside the user's browser in the context of the affected site. Information harvested this way may aid in launching further attacks.
