Description

The remote host is running Kayako eSupport, a web-based support and help desk application.

This version of eSupport is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting flaw involving the 'nav' parameter of the 'index.php' script. An attacker, exploiting this flaw, would need to be able to coerce an unsuspecting user into visiting a malicious website. Upon successful exploitation, the attacker would be able to steal credentials or execute browser- side code.
