IBM WebSphere Portal 8.0.0.x < CF22 Unspecified XSS (PI80564)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102176


The web portal software installed on the remote Windows host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


The version of IBM WebSphere Portal installed on the remote Windows host is 8.0.0.x prior to CF22. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.


Upgrade to IBM WebSphere Portal Cumulative Fix 22 (CF22) and apply Interim Fix PI80564 or later.
