Security Bulletin

Summary

A reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in Application
Performance Management. Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks occur when data
enters a Web application through an untrusted source, most frequently a web
request and the data is included in dynamic content that is sent to a web user
without being validated for malicious content. The malicious content sent to
the web browser often takes the form of a segment of JavaScript, but may also
include HTML, Flash, or any other type of code that the browser may execute.

The attacker-supplied code can perform a wide variety of actions, such as
stealing the victim's session token or login credentials or performing
arbitrary actions on the victim's behalf
