Description

The remote server is running Outlook Web Access (OWA) on Exchange.

This version of OWA, coupled with Exchange 5.5 SP4, is reported to be vulnerable to a remote Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) flaw. An attacker exploiting this flaw would typically need to be able to convince a user to browse to a malicious URI. Successful exploitation would result in arbitrary code executing in the client browser and possible theft of confidential data (such as authentication cookies).
