Nagios XI < 2011R3.0 Multiple XSS Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8365

Synopsis

A vulnerable version of Nagios XI has been detected.

Description

Versions of Nagios XI prior to 20011R3.0 are affected by multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities due to failure to properly sanitize user input to multiple web pages.

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the 'view' parameter of the 'perfgraphs/index.php' script.

- A cross-site scripting vulnerability exists in the 'div' parameter of the 'graphexplorer/visApi.php' script.

- Multiple unspecified cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by tricking a user into requesting a maliciously crafted URL, causing script code to be run in the user's browser in the context of the affected site.

Solution

Upgrade to Nagios 2011R3.0 or later.
