FortiOS 5.x < 5.0.6 XSS

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


Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is running FortiOS prior to 5.0.6. It is, therefore,
affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to a failure to
sanitize user-supplied input to the 'mkey' parameter in the
'/firewall/schedule/recurrdlg' URL of the web UI. An attacker could
potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary JavaScript
in the context of the end-user's browser.
