Security Updates for Microsoft Team Foundation Server and Azure DevOps Server (July 2020)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 138472


The Microsoft Team Foundation Server is affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability.


The Microsoft Team Foundation Server or Azure DevOps Server is missing security updates. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to not properly sanitizing user-provided input. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this by sending a specially-crafted payload to the TFS or Azure DevOps server, which will get executed in the context of the user every time a user visits the compromised page.


Microsoft has released the following updates to address these issues:
- Team Foundation Server 2018 Update 3.2 with patch 12
- Azure DevOps Server 2019 Update 0.1 with patch 7
- Azure DevOps Server 2019 Update 1.1 with patch 4

Please refer to the vendor guidance to determine the version and patch to apply.
