Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-05-31 15:26:08 UTC
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2010-1459 to
the following vulnerability:

The default configuration of ASP.NET in Mono before 2.6.4 has a value
of FALSE for the EnableViewStateMac property, which allows remote
attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, as
demonstrated by the __VIEWSTATE parameter to 2.0/menu/menu1.aspx in
the XSP sample project.
