Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
It was discovered that the error messages of Websense Content Gateway
process user-controllable data insecurely, rendering these pages
vulnerable to Cross-Site Scripting. Cross-Site Scripting allows an
attacker to perform a wide variety of actions, such as stealing the
victim's session token or login credentials, performing arbitrary
actions on the victim's behalf, and logging their keystrokes.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tested versions
------------------------------------------------------------------------
This issue was discovered on Websense Triton v7.8.3 and Websense
appliance modules V-Series v7.7. Other versions may be affected as well.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fix
------------------------------------------------------------------------
This issue is resolved in TRITON APX Version 8.0. More information about
the fixed can be found at the following location:
