HP System Management Homepage (SMH) < 2.1.12 Unspecified XSS

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4595

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack.

Description

The remote host appears to be running HP System Management Homepage (SMH), a web-based management interface for ProLiant and Integrity servers.

The version of HP SMH installed on the remote host fails to sanitize user input to an unspecified parameter and script before using it to generate dynamic HTML. A remote attacker may be able to exploit these issues to cause arbitrary HTML and script code to be executed by a user's browser in the context of the affected web site.

Solution

Upgrade to version 2.1.12.0 or higher.
