IBM BigFix Server 9.2.x < 184.108.40.206 BES Gather XSS
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 93224
SynopsisAn infrastructure management application running on the remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.
DescriptionAccording to its self-reported version, the IBM BigFix Server running on the remote host is version 9.2.x prior to 220.127.116.11. It is, therefore, affected by a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability that exists in the BES gather function due to improper validation of input before returning it to users. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted URL, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
IBM BigFix was formerly known as Tivoli Endpoint Manager, IBM Endpoint Manager, and IBM BigFix Endpoint Manager.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to IBM BigFix Server version 18.104.22.168 or later.
