SimpleSAMLphp logout.php link_href Parameter XSS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57635
SynopsisThe remote web server hosts a PHP application that contains a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of SimpleSAMLphp on the remote host contains a cross-site scripting vulnerability because it fails to sanitize input to the 'link_href' parameter of the 'logout.php' script before including it in a web page.
An attacker can leverage this issue by enticing a user to follow a malicious URL, causing attacker-specified script code to run inside the user's browser in the context of the affected site. Information harvested this way may aid in launching further attacks.
Versions of SimpleSAMLphp containing this vulnerability may also contain another cross-site scripting vulnerability in no_cookie.php, but this script did not test for that.
SolutionUpgrade to version 1.8.2 or later.
