Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85742
SynopsisThe remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionThe remote host is running a version of Fortinet FortiOS 5.0.x prior to 5.0.9. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input to the Telnet and SSH usernames. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the current user.
SolutionUpgrade to Fortinet FortiOS 5.0.9 or later.
