The reflected XSS vulnerability is a variant of a cross-site scriptingflaw: it occurs when the data provided by the attacker is exectued bythe browser, and then displayed on "normal" pages returned to otherusers in the course of regular browsing, without proper HTML escaping. Aclassic example of this is with online message boards where users areallowed to post HTML formatted messages for other users to read.
