Why is resin-doc deployed to the production environment?  That sounds
like a mistake, not something to patch or secure.

        Hi,
         
        We are currently using Resin3.0.25 and we could not pass PCI
Compliance scan due to the following problem (The message below is taken
from the scan results):
         
        -----------
        Synopsis : The remote web server contains a Java Servlet that is
affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. Description : The
remote host is running Resin, an application server. The 'viewfile'
Servlet included with the version of Resin installed on the remote host
fails to sanitize user input to the 'file' parameter before including it
in dynamic HTML output. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue
to inject arbitrary HTML and script code into a user's browser to be
executed within the security context of the affected site. Note that the
affected Servlet is part of the Resin documentation, which should not be
installed on production servers. See also :

<http://www.securitymetrics.com/u?2ea1b70f>
http://www.securitymetrics.com/u?2ea1b70 f Solution: Upgrade to Resin or
Resin Pro version 3.1.4  / 3.0.25 or later.
        -------
         
        If you try to view the following on a browser, it runs the
script on our servers, causing XSS security problem
(......./resin-doc/viewfile?file=SMetrics<script>alert('This is
vulnerable to XSS')</script>
<http://www.respond.com/resin-doc/viewfile?file=SMetrics<script>alert('T
his is vulnerable to XSS')</script>> ).
         
         
        They are suggesting that we should use Resin3.0.25 and we are
already using that version. 
        Is there a way to overcome this issue without upgrading to
version 3.1 or higher? Or is it possible to restrict access to
/resin-doc folder?
         
        I would appreciate it a lot, if you could help me out.
         
         
        Thank you.
