New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote HP Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) server's web interface is affected by a cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability.


A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in HP Integrated Lights-Out 5 (iLO 5) due to improper validation of user-supplied input before returning it to users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to click a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.


Upgrade firmware of HP Integrated Lights-Out 5 (iLO 5) to 1.40, or later.
