Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Splunk Enterprise. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The Splunk Web interface does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input in the HTTP Referer header before displaying the input. A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the Splunk 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.

Sanehdeep Singh of ControlCase International Pvt. Ltd reported this vulnerability.
