Description

Deerfield/Visnetic WebSite Pro (formerly O'Reilly Software WebSitePro) is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack via the HTTP Referer header. An attacker can request a non-existent page with a Referer header that contains malicious Javascript code. In the web server's 404 (Not Found) response, it emits the original Referer header verbatim, without escaping special characters.
