Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote host is running a version of Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS
prior to 5.0.16 / 6.0.9 / 6.1.3. It is, therefore, affected by a
cross-site vulnerability in the management interface due to improper
validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this
vulnerability by convincing an authenticated administrator to use a
specially crafted request, resulting in execution of arbitrary code in
the context of the current user.
