Adobe RoboHelp FlashHelp Unspecified XSS (APSB11-09) (credentialed check)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 54602
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.

Synopsis

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description

The version of RoboHelp on the remote host contains a cross-site scripting vulnerability in its FlashHelp and FlashHelp Pro output. An attacker may be able to leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an authenticated user in the context of the affected site and to steal cookie-based authentication credentials.

Note that this plugin checks for a version of RoboHelp that would generate FlashHelp and FlashHelp Pro projects with a cross-site scripting vulnerability rather than published projects with the vulnerability.

Solution

Apply the patch referenced in the vendor advisory above. Once the patch is applied, all FlashHelp and FlashHelp Pro files need to be regenerated.
