      Description

      The autoscroll parameter inserted in the requests is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
      If the POST request containing the autoscroll parameter is fuzzed to include something on the lines of "autoScroll=0%2C275);//--></script><IMG%20src="bla"%20onerror="alert(document.cookie)"><script>( ", one can see the JavaScript pop-up. This appears to be a vulnerability throughout the JSF apps.
