Product Description: Apache Archiva is an extensible repository management software that helps taking care of your own personal or enterprise-wide build artifact repository. It is the perfect companion for build tools such as Maven, Continuum, and ANT.

Archiva offers several capabilities, amongst which remote repository proxying, security access management, build artifact storage, delivery, browsing, indexing and usage reporting, extensible scanning functionality... and many more! (Source: http://archiva.apache.org/)

Vulnerability Details: User can insert HTML or execute arbitrary JavaScript code within the vulnerable application. The vulnerabilities arise due to insufficient input validation in multiple input fields throughout the application. Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities could result in, but not limited to, compromise of the application, theft of cookie-based authentication credentials, arbitrary url redirection, disclosure or modification of sensitive data and phishing attacks.
