Barracuda Spam Firewall cgi-bin/ldap_test.cgi email Parameter XSS

This script is Copyright (C) 2008-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote web server contains a CGI script that is affected by a
cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

According to its firmware version, the remote Barracuda Spam Firewall
device fails to filter input to the 'email' parameter of the
'/cgi-bin/ldap_test.cgi' script before using it to generate dynamic
content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker may be able to leverage
this issue to inject arbitrary HTML or script code into a user's
browser to be executed within the security context of the affected
site.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported firmware version.

application by IP address or update to firmware release 3.5.11.025 or
later.
