Description

According to its self-reported version, Cisco Identity Services Engine Software is affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability due to the web-based management interface not properly validating user-supplied input. 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.

Please see the included Cisco BID and Cisco Security Advisory for more information.

Solution

Upgrade to the relevant fixed version referenced in Cisco bug ID CSCvv01681.
