Title: Accellion File Transfer Appliance Web Interface Audit Log username Parameter XSS
Nov 04, 2009
The Accellion File Transfer Appliance contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the username parameter upon submission to the login script. This may allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server when a failed login attempt is displayed in the audit log page accessed by administrative users.

Upgrade to version 7_0_296 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
