A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way the commenting system of the ReviewBoard, a web-based code review tool, sanitized user input (new comments to be loaded). A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL, which once visited by valid ReviewBoard user could lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the 'diff viewer' or 'screenshot pages' components.
