Description

Deerfield/Visnetic WebSite Pro (formerly O'Reilly Software WebSitePro) is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack via the POST method. An attacker can request a non-existent URL that has malicious Javascript characters in the path (using the POST method). In the web server's 501 (Not Implemented) response, it emits the original URL verbatim, without escaping special characters.
