Sun AnswerBook2 < 1.4.5 XSS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote host is running Sun AnswerBook2 web application.

Description

The remote host is running Sun AnswerBook2 web application. This application allows users to view and search Sun documentation online. This version of AnswerBook2 is vulnerable to a cross-site-scripting (XSS) attack. Exploiting the XSS flaws may enable an attacker to inject arbitrary script code into the browser of unsuspecting users. A successful attack would potentially allow the attacker the ability to view confidential data (cookies, authentication data, and more.) or compromise the integrity of the local system via the web browser.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.4.5 or higher.
