Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in DServe, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed via the "dsqField" parameter to DServe.exe (when "dsqCmd" is set to "OverSort.tcl", "dsqDb" is set, and "dsqApp" is set to "Archive"), and via e.g. the "srch_AnyText" POST parameter to DServe.exe (when "dsqCmd" POST parameter is set to "SearchFormParser.tcl", "ResultAs" POST parameter is set to "Overview", and the "dsqDb" and "dsqApp" POST parameters are set, or "dsqCmd" POST parameter is set to "SearchBuild.tcl" and "dsqApp" POST parameter is set) is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
Solution: Filter malicious characters or character sequences via a proxy.
