Description

A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability—CVE-2007-6704—exists in the FirePass logon page when a pre-logon sequence is enabled. The affected FirePass URL fails to fully sanitize URL input before the web page content is sent to the browser.

It is possible for an attacker to create web pages, emails, or other media containing hyperlinks to the vulnerable FirePass web page, which may include executable code or other malicious data. If you follow the hyperlink to the FirePass controller, the affected web page will be returned to your browser with the malicious content. This issue could result in code execution on the client side, leading to the disclosure of sensitive information or other exploits.

Note: Pre-logon sequences are configured on the Users: Endpoint Security: Pre-Logon Sequence page in the FirePass Administrative Console.
