Sun iPlanet contains a flaw that may allow an attacker to inject an arbitrary URL into an error page. The issue is due to a non-existent URL received via the HTTP referer header being used in the error page output. The resulting error page will use an HTML href element to render the link, only showing "referring page". While minor, this type of attack may assist in social engineering attacks.
