Date:  Jun 10 2014
Impact:   Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): Server 2010, 2013
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Microsoft Lync Server. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The server does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL containing a valid Lync meeting ID that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Microsoft Lync software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site.

Impact:   A remote user can access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site.
Solution:   The vendor has issued the following fixes:

Microsoft Lync Server 2010:
