1. Impact

   A Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability in various releases of the
   Sun Java System Web Server and Sun Java System Application Server may
   allow an unprivileged local or remote user to steal cookie
   information, hijack sessions, or cause a loss of data privacy between
   a client and the server.

   Sun acknowledges with thanks, CERT and JPCERT/CC for bringing this
   issue to our attention.

   This issue is described in JPCERT/CC Vulnerability JVN#03D5EAA8 at
   http://jvn.jp/jp/JVN%2303D5EAA8/index.html

   Sun also acknowledges with thanks, Little eArth Corporation Co., Ltd.,
   for discovering and reporting this issue.

       Update 2 and earlier
     * Sun Java System Application Server 7 2004Q2 Enterprise Edition
       Update 2 and earlier

   To determine the version of Sun Java System Application Server on a
   system, the following command can be run:
    $ <AS_INSTALL>/bin/asadmin version --verbose
    Sun Java System Application Server 7 2004Q2UR3 (build A051525-273129)

   (Where <AS_INSTALL> is the installation directory of the Application
   Server)

   the following command can be run:
    $ <WS-install>/https-<host>/start -version

   where <WS-install> is top installation directory of Web Server and
   <host> should be the actual host name on which the Web Server is
   installed.
