Nagios XI < 2011R3.0 Multiple XSS Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 60099


The remote web server contains a PHP application that is affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.


The version of Nagios XI hosted on the remote web server fails to properly sanitize input to multiple web pages.

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the 'view' parameter of the 'perfgraphs/index.php' script.

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the 'div' parameter of the 'graphexplorer/visApi.php' script.

- Multiple unspecified cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

An attacker can leverage these issues 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.


Upgrade to Nagios XI 2011R3.0 or later.
