FortiWeb 5.x < 5.2.1 Multiple XSS Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8667


The remote host is affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability.


The remote host is running FortiWeb 5.x prior to 5.2.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in the web management interface URLs '/user/ldap_user/check_dlg' and '/user/radius_user/check_dlg' due to insufficient parameter input validation. Under specific conditions, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary JavaScript code within an administrative browser session.


Upgrade to FortiWeb version 5.2.1 or later.
