Description:   A vulnerability was reported in IBM Lotus Notes. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser.

The vendor has assigned SPRs JMAS7TRNLN and SRAO8U3Q68 to this vulnerability.
