Gattaca Server 2003 is reported prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability. This issue presents itself due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data.
A remote attacker can exploit this issue by creating a malicious link to the vulnerable application that includes hostile HTML and script code. If a user follows this link, the hostile code renders in the web browser of the victim user. This would occur in the security context of the web server and may allow for theft of cookie-based authentication credentials or other attacks.
Cattaca Server 2003 version 188.8.131.52 is reported prone to this issue. Other versions may also be vulnerable.
Gattaca Server 2003 web.tmpl Multiple Parameter XSS
Remote / Network Access
Loss of Integrity
Gattaca Server 2003 contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the TEMPLATE and LANGUAGE variables upon submission to the web.tmpl script. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.
Currently, there are no known upgrades, patches, or workarounds available to correct this issue.
