Cisco Firepower Management Center Multiple XSS

medium Nessus Plugin ID 101265


A network management application installed on the remote host is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.


The version of Cisco Firepower Management Center installed on the remote host is equal or prior to 5.4.1.x. It is, therefore, affected by multiple stored cross-site scripting vulnerabilities due to improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to users. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit these, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.


Upgrade to Cisco Firepower Management Center version or later.
