A vulnerability reported in SQL Server Report Manager could allow an attacker to inject a script into the user's web browser, and take action on behalf of the user.
Microsoft has released a security update to address a vulnerability in SQL Server Report Manager, which was caused by improper validation of a request parameter on the Report Manager SQL Server site. An attacker who successfully exploits this vulnerability could inject a client-side script into the user's instance of Internet Explorer, and use the script to spoof content, disclose information, or take action on behalf of the user.
This issue has been resolved by correcting the way that SQL Server Report Manager encodes input parameters. As a protection measure against potential exploit attempts, users are recommended to install the latest update for applicable system.
