Cisco Security Advisory
Cisco Firepower Management Center and FireSIGHT System Software Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability
A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Firepower Management Center and Cisco FireSIGHT System Software could allow an authenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack against a user of the web-based management interface of an affected device.
The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input by the web-based management interface of an affected device. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to click a crafted link. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the interface or allow the attacker to access sensitive browser-based information.
