IBM Rational Directory Server contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the 'href' parameter upon submission to the /rds-help/advanced/deferredView.jsp script. This may allow a user to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.
