Nagios XI < 2009R1.3B Multiple XSS Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5668


A vulnerable version of Nagios XI has been detected.


Versions of Nagios XI prior to 2009R1.3B are affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities due to failure to properly sanitize user input to the 'status' and 'dashboard pages'. A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by tricking a user into requesting a maliciously crafted URL, resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Upgrade to Nagios 2009R1.3B or later.
