Consequence: An attacker may be able to cause execution of scripting code within the browser of a victim user who clicks on a malicious link. Such code would run within the context of the target domain. This type of attack can result in non-persistent defacement of the target site, or the redirection of confidential information (i.e.: session IDs or passwords) to unauthorised third parties.
