CVE-2014-1904 XSS when using Spring MVC

Severity: Moderate

Vendor: Spring by Pivotal

Versions Affected: - - Spring MVC 3.0.0 to 3.2.8 - - Spring MVC 4.0.0 to 4.0.1 - - Earlier unsupported versions may be affected

Description: When a programmer does not specify the action on the Spring form, Spring automatically populates the action field with the requested uri. An atacker can use this to inject malicious content into the form.

Mitigation: Users of affected versions should apply the following mitigation: - - Users of 3.x should upgrade to 3.2.8 or later - - Users of 4.x should upgrade to 4.0.2 or later

Credit: This issue was discovered and reported responsibly to the Pivotal security team by Paul Wowk of CAaNES LLC.
