medium Nessus Plugin ID 160545

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

The version of F5 Networks BIG-IP installed on the remote host is prior to 17.0.0. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the K92807525 advisory.

- On all versions of 16.1.x, 15.1.x, 14.1.x, 13.1.x, 12.1.x, and 11.6.x of F5 BIG-IP, and F5 BIG-IP Guided Configuration (GC) all versions prior to 9.0, a stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in an undisclosed page of the BIG-IP Configuration utility that allows an attacker to execute JavaScript in the context of the currently logged-in user. Note: Software versions which have reached End of Technical Support (EoTS) are not evaluated (CVE-2022-27878)

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