SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1023171
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1023171
CVE Reference:   CVE-2009-3565   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Nov 12 2009
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  Exploit Included:  Yes  
Version(s): NSM 5.1.7.7
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in McAfee IntruShield Network Security Manager. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The 'Login.jsp' script does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the 'iaction' and 'node' parameters before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the McAfee IntruShield device and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
