Description

According to its self-reported version number, the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller Enterprise Module (APIC-EM) application running on the remote host is version 1.1. It is, therefore, affected by a reflected cross-site scripting vulnerability due to improper sanitization of input before returning it to users. A remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session.
