Adobe Document Server for Reader Extensions < 6.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to exploit an XSS flaw in Adobe Document Server for Reader Extensions

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server is affected by multiple flaws.

Description :

The remote host is running Adobe Document Server, a server that
dynamically creates and manipulates PDF documents as well as graphic

The version of Adobe Document Server installed on the remote host
includes the Adobe Document Server for Reader Extensions component,
which itself is affected by several issues :

- Missing Access Controls
An authenticated user can gain access to functionality to which
they should not have access by manipulating the 'actionID' and
'pageID' parameters.

- Cross-Site Scripting Flaws
The application fails to sanitize input to several parameters
before using it to generate dynamic web content.

- Information Disclosure
The application exposes a user's session id in the Referer
header, which can lead to a loss of confidentiality. Also,
the application returns different error messages during
unsuccessful authentication attempts, which can be used to
enumerate users.
