Cisco Unified Computing System Input Validation Flaw Lets Remote Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1035933
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1035933
CVE Reference:   CVE-2016-1401   (Links to External Site)
Date:  May 20 2016
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  
Version(s): 1.4(1a)
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Cisco Unified Computing System. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The HTTP web-based management interface does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input 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 Cisco Unified Computing System interface 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 vendor has assigned bug ID CSCuy91250 to this vulnerability.

Gregory Draperi reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the Cisco Unified Computing System interface, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the interface, or take actions on the interface acting as the target user.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix.

The vendor's advisory is available at:
