Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): VMware View prior to 3.1.3
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in VMware View. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the VMware View software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Alexey Sintsov from Digital Security Research Group [DSecRG] reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the VMware View software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
