CiscoWorks Common Services HTTP Response Splitting

medium Nessus Plugin ID 58950
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.


The network management framework on the remote web server has an HTTP response splitting vulnerability.


The version of CiscoWorks Common Services on the remote host has an HTTP response splitting vulnerability. Common Services is a framework included with several Cisco products. Input to the 'URL' parameter of Autologin.jsp is not properly sanitized.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into making a malicious request, resulting in the injection of HTTP headers, modification of the HTTP response body, or splitting the HTTP response into multiple responses.
