RSA Authentication Manager Input Validation Flaw Lets Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
Severity Rating: Medium
- RSA Authentication Manager version 8.2 SP1 and prior
A vulnerability has been identified in RSA Authentication Manager and can be exploited by remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting attacks. The vulnerability exists because the software does not properly filter HTML code from user supplied input before it is displayed. This vulnerability can allow an authenticated RSA Security Console Administrator user to cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the RSA Authentication Manager 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 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.
Users are advised to apply updates.
