Juniper ScreenOS 6.3.x < 6.3.0r24 Multiple XSS (JSA10782)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host is affected by multiple cross-site scripting

Description :

The version of Juniper ScreenOS running on the remote host is 6.3.x
prior to 6.3.0r24. It is, therefore, affected by multiple cross-site
scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in the web user interface due to
improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to
users. An authenticated, remote attacker who has a 'security' role can
exploit this issue to inject HTML or JavaScript into the management
session of other users, including the administrator.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead
relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution :

Upgrade to Juniper ScreenOS version 6.3.0r24 or later. Alternatively,
apply the workaround referenced in the vendor's advisory.
