Apache Tomcat Host Manager Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability
Apache Tomcat is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input. The issue affects the Host Manager web application.
An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may help the attacker steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.
The issue affects the following versions:
Tomcat 5.5.9 through 5.5.26
Tomcat 6.0.0 through 6.0.16
