Additional Information

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing provides real-time collaboration functionality to an organization's intranet and Extranet, and integrates Cisco Unified MeetingPlace with a web server, thus providing users with a browser-based interface. Web Conferencing enables users to schedule and attend conferences, access meeting materials, and collaborate on documents from common web browsers.

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace contains a stored cross-site scripting vulnerability that could allow a remote, authenticated attacker to perform a persistent cross-site scripting attack by injecting HTML or Script code by way of the edit account page. The malicious input is subsequently included within the Account Details page as well as within the Meeting Details pages of any meeting that is scheduled by the affected account.

This vulnerability exists within all versions of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.

Additional information regarding cross-site scripting can be found in the following document: Cisco Applied Mitigation Bulletin: Understanding Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Threat Vectors.

To determine the software version of a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server, access the MeetingPlace server home page by means of an HTTP session; the version information is provided at the bottom of the home page. The following output shows an example of the text that is shown when accessing the home page of a MeetingPlace Web Conferencing server running software version 6.0.417.0:

Version:  6.0.417.0
