CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-5098   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Nov 19 2008
Original Entry Date:  Nov 13 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Sun Java System Messaging Server. 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 code will originate from the site running the Sun Java System Messaging Server 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.

Seth Hall of Ohio State University 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 Sun Java System Messaging Server 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.
