Cross-site scripting CVE-2006-7196

The calendar application included as part of the JSP examples is susceptible to
a cross-site scripting attack as it does not escape user provided data before
including it in the returned page.

Affects: 5.0.0-5.0.30, 5.5.0-5.5.15

Advisory text: "The calendar application in the JSP examples did not escape
displayed values.  If the JSP examples are accessible, this flaw could allow a
remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting attacks.  (CVE-2006-7196)"
