VMware vRealize Automation 6.x < 6.2.4 Unspecified Stored XSS (VMSA-2016-0003)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 90763

Synopsis

A device management application running on the remote host is affected by a stored cross-site-scripting vulnerability.

Description

The VMware vRealize Automation application running on the remote host is 6.x prior to 6.2.4. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified stored cross-site scripting vulnerability due to improper validation of user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this by convincing a user to follow a specially crafted request, resulting in the execution of arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.

Solution

Upgrade to VMware vRealize Automation version 6.2.4 or later.
