Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Liferay Enterprise Portal Enterprise Edition. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The software does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the Liferay Enterprise Portal software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

The '_20_body' parameter in the comment field of an uploaded file is affected.

The script execution will occur in the 'My Account', 'My Workflow Tasks', 'View' menu item of an authenticated administrator's account.

Ariel Walter Garcia from Deloitte Argentina reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Liferay Enterprise Portal software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (Patch: LPE-12961).
