Apache Jetspeed Portal URI Path Reflected XSS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90247

Synopsis

The remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description

The Apache Jetspeed application running on the remote host is affected by a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the /portal script due to improper validation of URI path input before returning it to the users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.

Note that Apache Jetspeed is reported to be affected by other vulnerabilities as well; however, Nessus has not tested for these.

Solution

Upgrade to Apache Jetspeed version 2.3.1 when it becomes available.
