Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerabilities

by Donna Buenaventura / April 5, 2004 10:15 PM PDT

Secunia Advisory: SA11292
Release Date: 2004-04-06

Critical: Less critical
Impact: Cross Site Scripting

Where: From remote

Software: Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001
CVE reference: CAN-2004-0379

Ory Segal has reported multiple vulnerabilities in Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The vulnerabilities are caused due to insufficient input validation in three scripts included with the product. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation may result in exposure of various information (e.g. cookie-based authentication information) associated with the site running Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001 or inclusion of malicious content, which the user thinks is part of the real website.

Apply Service Pack 3.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
