Juniper Junos J-Web Reflected XSS (JSA10764)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 94333
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote device is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.

Description

According to its self-reported version number and configuration, the remote Juniper Junos device is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the J-web component due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.

Solution

Upgrade to the relevant Junos software release referenced in Juniper advisory JSA10764.
