Fortinet FortiGate <= 5.6.13 / 6.0.x < 6.0.13 / 6.2.x < 6.2.8 / 6.4.x < 6.4.5 XSS (FG-IR-20-199)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 150156
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


The remote host is running a FortiOS version prior or equal to 5.6.13, 6.0.x prior to 6.0.13, 6.2.x prior to 6.2.8, or 6.4.x prior to 6.4.6. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. An unauthenticated attacker may be able perform a reflected cross-site scripting attack by sending a request to the error page with malicious GET parameters.

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to Fortinet FortiOS version 6.0.13, 6.2.8, 6.4.6, 7.0.0 or later.
