Eclipse BIRT <= 2.2.1 Reflected XSS

Vendor: Eclipse
Advisory: http://antisnatchor.com/2008/12/18/eclipse-birt-reflected-xss/ 
Author:  Michele "euronymous" Orr=F9 (euronymous AT antisnatchor DOT com)

Quite a common problem in a lot of Java based applications: reflected
XSS in Java stack trace.

A Reflected XSS is present in the _report parameter: here below the modified
request (that is the BIRT 2.2.1 version included in Konakart 2.2.6)

Host: localhost:8780
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:
Gecko/20081029 Firefox/
Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 300
Proxy-Connection: keep-alive
Referer: http://localhost:8780/konakartadmin/ 

Konakart is actually using org.eclipse.birt.core_2.2.1.r22x_v20070924, that is
actually old.
