The remote host is vulnerable to a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack.


The remote host is running NetCaptor. NetCaptor is a web browser that is installed 'over' Internet Explorer, using the IE core engine while adding functionality to the GUI.

An attacker exploiting this flaw may be able to access confidential data from the client.
