Summary: CA Service Desk contains multiple vulnerabilities that 
can allow a remote attacker to conduct cross-site scripting 
attacks. CA has issued patches to address the vulnerabilities. The 
vulnerabilities, CVE-2008-4119, are due to insecure handling of 
passed variables in multiple web forms. An attacker, who can 
convince a user to click on a specially crafted link, can 
potentially conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
