Security Update for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 (August 2017)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102272


An application installed on the remote Windows host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The Microsoft SharePoint Server installed on the remote Windows host is missing security update 2956077. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability when Microsoft SharePoint Server does not properly sanitize a specially crafted web request to an affected SharePoint server. An authenticated attacker could exploit the vulnerability by sending a specially crafted request to an affected SharePoint server. The attacker who successfully exploited the vulnerability could then perform cross-site scripting attacks on affected systems and run script in the security context of the current user. The attacks could allow the attacker to read content that the attacker is not authorized to read, use the victim's identity to take actions on the SharePoint site on behalf of the user, such as change permissions and delete content, and inject malicious content in the browser of the user.


Microsoft has released a patch for SharePoint Server 2010.
