Synopsis :

The remote web server suffers from a cross-site scripting

Description :

The remote host is running Sawmill, a weblog analysis package.

arbitrary query string appended to a GET request as a configuration
command and fails to sanitize it before using it in an error page. An
unauthenticated attacker may be able to exploit this issue to steal
authentication information of users of the affected application.
