Description

Spiceworks contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate the 'article[new_references][][url]' parameter upon submission to /xbb/knowledge_base. 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.
