Liferay Portal upload_progress_poller.jsp XSS

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59360

Synopsis

The remote web server contains a Java application affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

Description

The version of Liferay Portal hosted on the remote web server fails to properly sanitize input to the 'uploadProgressId' parameter of the 'upload_progress_poller.jsp' script.

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.

Solution

Update to the newest version in Git or to 6.2.0 when it becomes available.
