IBM Lotus Sametime Server Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability

Tuesday, 7 August 2007

In very specific scenarios, there is a possibility that a Sametime® server could be exploited by a Cross Site Scripting vulnerability.
In a specific instance, it was found that a precisely crafted Sametime meeting could potentially contain text that would expose a Cross Site Script vulnerability.

This can be addressed in Sametime 7.5.1 by applying an available hotfix. All future releases will contain this fix within the shipping version. Additionally, the same issue was not seen using the EMS server.
