CVE-2009-2897: Reflected XSS in stack trace

Severity: Moderate

Vendor: SpringSource

Versions Affected: Hyperic HQ 3.2, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2-beta1. Earlier,
unsupported versions may also be affected

Description:
The stack trace displayed on the default error page is displayed
verbatim without running it through a sanitizer. This can be exploited
by an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript code in the context of
the browser of a legitimate logged in user.

Mitigation:
3.2 users should upgrade to 3.2.6 and then apply the 3.2.6.1 patch
4.0 users should upgrade to 4.0.3 and then apply the 4.0.3.1 patch
4.1 users should upgarde to 4.1.2 and then apply the 4.1.2.1 patch
4.2-beta1 users should upgrade to 4.2-beta2 or later
To protect themselves from this issue until the patches have been
applied, users should not browse other web sites whilst signed in to
Hyperic HQ and should sign out once they have completed their tasks.

Credit:
This vulnerability was first reported to SpringSource by Eric Searcy
(via the Hyperic Forums).
This vulnerability was independently discovered and researched by Gastón
Rey and Pablo Carballo from Core Security Technologies during Core
Bugweek 2009.
