Pubcookie Login Server Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan


Vulnerability Scan Summary
Tries to inject arbitrary script into Pubcookie Login Server

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a CGI script that is affected by
several non-persistent cross-site scripting flaws.

Description :

The remote host is running Pubcookie, an open-source package for
intra-institutional single-sign-on end-user web authentication.

The version of the Login Server component of Pubcookie installed on
the remote host fails to sanitize user-supplied input to various
parameters of the 'index.cgi' script before using it to generate
dynamic HTML. A possible hacker may be able to exploit these issues to
cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed by a user's
browser in the context of the affected web site, which could be used
to steal authentication credentials or mis-represent the affected
application.
