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.


A web application on the remote host has a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


The version of Health Monitor (a component of Cisco Prime Network / Wireless Control System) hosted on the remote web server is affected by a reflective cross-site scripting vulnerability. Input to the 'requestUrl' parameter is not properly sanitized. An attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into requesting a specially crafted URL, resulting in arbitrary script code execution.


There is no known solution at this time.
