Adobe Flex SDK 3.x 'index.template.html' Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability. CVE-2009-1879. Webapps exploits for multiple platform

Adobe Flex SDK is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because it fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input to express-install template files.

An attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary script code in the context of a web application built using the SDK. This may allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and to launch other attacks.

Versions prior to Flex SDK 3.4 are vulnerable.
