Expect Header Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Checks for an XSS flaw involving Expect Headers
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote web server is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack.
The remote web server fails to sanitize the contents of an 'Expect'
request header before using it to generate dynamic web content. An
unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to leverage this issue to
launch cross-site scripting attacks against the affected service,
perhaps through specially-crafted ShockWave (SWF) files.
