Cisco Unified Communications Manager XSS (cisco-sa-cucm-xss-ksKd5yfA)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 163102


The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The version of Cisco Unified Communications Manager installed on the remote host is version 14 prior to 14SU2. It is, therefore affect by a cross-site scripting vulnerability (XSS) in the web-based management interface. An unauthenticated remote attacker can, with the action of an authorized user, execute arbitrary script code in the context of the affected interface or access sensitive browser-based information.

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