Error description

  • CVEID:   CVE-2012-5920
    DESCRIPTION:   Google Web Toolkit is vulnerable to cross-site
    scripting, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input.

    specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web
    browser within the security context of the hosting Web site,
    once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this
    vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication
    credentials. Note: This vulnerability is due to an incomplete
    fix for CVE-2012-4563.
    CVSS Base score: 4.3
