Splunk Enterprise < 9.0.4 XSS (SVD-2023-0202)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 171550


An application running on a remote web server host is affected by an XSS vulnerability.


The version of Splunk installed on the remote host is prior to 9.0.4. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability where a View allows for XSS through the error message in a Base64-encoded image. The vulnerability affects instances with Splunk Web enabled.

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


Upgrade to Splunk Enterprise 9.0.4, or later.
