PROBLEM:

A vulnerability was reported in Cisco IronPort Encryption Appliance.

PLATFORM:

Version(s): prior to 6.5.3

ABSTRACT:

A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting

reference LINKS:

Vendor URL
CVE-2012-0340
Security Tracker ID:1026669

IMPACT ASSESSMENT:

Medium

Discussion:

The interface does not properly filter HTML code from user-supplied input before displaying the input. A remote user can create a specially crafted URL that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the Cisco IronPort device and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:

Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Solution:

The vendor has issued a fix (6.5.3).
