FortiWeb 5.x < 5.1.0 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 FortiWeb 5.x prior to 5.1.0. It is,
therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the web
UI due to a failure to sanitize user-supplied input to the 'filter'
parameter in the '/user/ldap_user/add' script. An attacker could
potentially exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary JavaScript
in the context of the end-user's browser.
