Vulnerability Description

Novell iChain contains a undisclosed flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate input passed to the webserver upon submission to an undisclosed script. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server allowing the user to possibly steal login credentials, leading to a loss of integrity.

Solution Description

Currently, there are no known workarounds or upgrades to correct this issue. However, Novell has released a patch to address this vulnerability.
