Splunk Enterprise 6.2.x < 6.2.6 / Splunk Light 6.2.x < 6.2.6 Splunk Web XSS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 85962
SynopsisThe remote web server is running an application that is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its version number, the instance of Splunk hosted on the remote web server is Splunk Enterprise 6.2.x prior to 6.2.6 or Splunk Light 6.2.x prior to 6.2.6. It is, therefore, affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the Splunk Web component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Splunk Enterprise 6.2.6 / Splunk Light 6.2.6 or later.
