Cisco Identity Services Engine Input Validation Flaw in Web Framework Permits Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1031560
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1031560
CVE Reference:   CVE-2014-8022   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jan 20 2015
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information
Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Cisco Identity Services Engine. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

The web framework 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 site running the Cisco Identity Services Engine software 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.

The vendor has assigned bug IDs CSCur69835 and CSCur69776 to this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the Cisco Identity Services Engine software, 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.
Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.
