Description

The remote host appears to be running Geronimo, an open source J2EE server from the Apache Software Foundation.

The version of Geronimo installed on the remote host includes a JSP application that fails to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'time' parameter before using it to generate a dynamic webpage. An attacker can exploit this flaw to cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed in a user's browser within the context of the affected web site.
