Vulnerabilities in IIS 4.0 and 5.0 do not properly protect against cross-site scripting (CSS) attacks. They allow a malicious web site operator to embed scripts in a link to a trusted site, which are returned without quoting in an error message back to the client. The client then executes those scripts in the same context as the trusted site, aka the "IIS Cross-Site Scripting" vulnerabilities.

 Christey> A re-release of MS:MS00-060 indicates that a new variant of
   this problem was discovered, but the advisory does not
   provide sufficient details to distinguish it from this
   candidate.  A new candidate is being created, but the 
   description can't be written without mentioning this CAN.
