Synopsis

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

Description

The ManageEngine ADSelfService Plus application running on the remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in PasswordSelfServiceAPI due to improper sanitization of user-supplied input to the 'PSS_OPERATION' parameter. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary scripting code in the user's browser session. An attacker can also exploit this issue to disclose cookie-based authentication credentials.
