Synopsis :

A web application on the remote host has multiple cross-site scripting
vulnerabilities.

Description :

According to its self-reported version, the Nagios XI installation on
the remote host has multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
The 'grab_request_var()' function doesn't properly sanitize user
input. This affects input to multiple parameters on the
'admin/users.php' page.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into
requesting a maliciously crafted URL, resulting in arbitrary script
code execution.
