According to its self-reported version, the version of IVE OS running on the remote host has the following cross-site scripting vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified cross-site scripting issue exists related to login pages.

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the WWHSearchWordsText parameter of the help page.

An attacker could exploit either of these issues by tricking a user into requesting a malicious URL, resulting in arbitrary script code execution.
