Multiple vulnerabilities in the administrative web interface of the Cisco FireSIGHT Management Center could allow an attacker to conduct both cross-site scripting (XSS) and also arbitrary HTML command injection attacks.
These vulnerabilities are due to improper user input validation. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by crafting input into the affected fields of the web interface.
Cisco has confirmed the vulnerabilities and released software updates.
To exploit these vulnerabilities, the attacker may provide a link that directs a user to a malicious site and use misleading language or instructions to persuade the user to follow the link.
Cisco indicates through the CVSS score that functional exploit code exists; however, the code is not known to be publicly available.
Cisco has released bug IDs CSCus93566, CSCut31557, CSCut47196, CSCus04436, CSCuu43794, CSCuu90178, and CSCuu90178 for registered users, which contain additional details and up-to-date lists of affected product versions.
Vulnerable ProductsAt the time this alert was first published, Cisco FireSIGHT System Software version 5.4 and prior were vulnerable. Later versions of Cisco FireSIGHT System Software may also be vulnerable.
