SAP NetWeaver RFC WSDL service has linked XSS vulnerability.

Business Risk
An attacker can use the XSS vulnerability by sending a link on malicious script to an unaware user via e-mail, messaging or social networks. The end user browser has no way of knowing that the script should not be trusted, and will execute the script. The malicious script can get access to any cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information retained by your browser and used with SAP web applications like Portal, CRM, SRM and others. This script can even rewrite the contents of an HTML page. Thus, the attacker can gain access to the user’s session and gain control over business-critical information which can be accessed by the victim.
