Red Hat Enterprise MRG v2 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (version 5)
Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities allow a third party to manipulate the content or behaviour of a web application in a user's browser, without compromising the underlying system.
Different Cross-Site Scripting related vulnerabilities are also classified under this category, including "script insertion" and "cross-site request forgery".
Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities are often used against specific users of a website to steal their credentials or to conduct spoofing attacks.
Red Hat has issued an update for Red Hat Enterprise MRG. This fixes multiple vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious users to conduct script insertion attacks.
