The version of Fortigate installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the FG-IR-22-224 advisory.

- An improper neutralization of input during web page generation [CWE-79] vulnerability in FortiOS versions 7.0.0 to 7.0.7 and 7.2.0 to 7.2.3 may allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to launch a cross site scripting (XSS) attack via the redir parameter of the URL seen when the Sign in with FortiCloud button is clicked.
