1. Description

XSS exists in Ericsson Active Library Explorer (ALEX) 14.3 in multiple
parameters in the "/cgi-bin/alexserv" servlet, as demonstrated by the DB,
FN, fn, or id parameter.

Active Library Explorer (ALEX) is server-based software that enables users
to browse Ericsson document libraries and documents with a standard web
browser. It consists of the following two parts, which are typically used
in two different web browser windows:

Library View a this part contains functions for accessing libraries
within a folder structure. For example, it is possible to search for
libraries, download libraries, or compare library variants. It is also
possible to start a search for documents in several libraries at the same
time.
Document View a this part contains functions for accessing documents
inside a library. For example, it is possible to search for documents or
within documents in individual libraries, and to print or bookmark
documents.
