Cisco Prime Collaboration contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. Updates are not available.
A vulnerability in the Assurance component of Cisco Prime Collaboration
could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct several cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks against the user of the web interface
of the affected system.
The vulnerability is due to insufficient
validation of user input. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability
by persuading a user to follow a malicious link or access an
attacker-controlled website. An exploit could allow the attacker to
execute arbitrary client-side code in the browser of the unsuspecting
user in the security context of the website, which could allow the
attacker to obtain the user's access credentials.
Cisco has confirmed the vulnerability in a security notice; however, software updates are not available.
At the time this alert was first published, Cisco Prime Collaboration version 9.0 is vulnerable. Later releases of Cisco Prime Collaboration may also be vulnerable.
To exploit the vulnerability, 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 provided 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 a security notice at the following link: CVE-2013-6690
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary script code in the user's browser session under the security context of the affected site. A successful exploit could be used to conduct further attacks.
The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input by the affected software.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a user to visit a malicious web page. When the user visits the page, the attacker could execute arbitrary script code in the user's browser session and access sensitive browser-based information, such as authenticated session cookies and recently submitted data, which could be used to conduct further attacks.
Administrators are advised to contact the vendor regarding future updates and releases.
Users are advised not to visit websites or follow links that have suspicious characteristics or cannot be verified as safe.
