Description:   Two vulnerabilities were reported in Symantec Data Insight. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting and HTML injection attacks.

Several scripts do not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input [CVE-2014-3432, CVE-2014-3433]. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the Symantec Data Insight management console 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.

The 2am Research team reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the Symantec Data Insight management console, 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.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (4.5).
