description:Lotus Quickr, announced at Lotusphere 2007, is an evolution of Lotus QuickPlace ,The software use a weak xss filter that an attacker can bypass this xss filter. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the IBM Lotus Quickr 8.0 software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
