A web application running on the remote web server is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.


The instance of ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus running on the remote web server is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in the script due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to the 'searchString', 'searchType' and 'actionID' parameters. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these vulnerabilities, via a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
