Description

Adobe RoboHelp contains a flaw that allows a remote cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate input passed via the location.hash DOM property upon submission to the index.html script. This may allow a user to create a specially crafted request that would execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between their browser and the server.
