Microsoft Internet Explorer is prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because the application fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to spoof the contents of the Navigation canceled page, steal cookie-based authentication credentials, and obtain other sensitive information. Successful exploits may assist in phishing or other attacks that rely on content spoofing.
