Updated:  Apr 24 2008
Original Entry Date:  Jul 25 2007
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): 2.5.4.18 and prior versions; FIPS version 2.4.8.6-FIPS and prior
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in the Aruba Mobility Controller. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The login script of the 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 site running the Aruba Mobility Controller software 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.

Adair Collins and Steve Palmer of HostsPlus and Nobuhiro Tsuji of NTT DATA SECURITY CORPORATION separately reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Aruba Mobility Controller software, 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.
