Cisco IOS XE Input Validation Flaw in Web Framework Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1039627
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1039627
CVE Reference:   CVE-2017-12272   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Oct 18 2017
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  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Cisco IOS XE. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The web framework code 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 IOS XE web 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.

Systems with the HTTP Server feature enabled are affected.

The vendor has assigned bug ID CSCvb09516 to this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the Cisco IOS XE web 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.
