Description

A reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists in an undisclosed page of the BIG-IP Configuration utility that allows an attacker to execute JavaScript in the context of the current logged-in user. (CVE-2018-15314)

Impact

BIG-IP

A remote unauthenticated attacker could potentially exploit this vulnerability by sending a specific crafted URL that includes the specific target host name and malicious HTML or JavaScript code to a Configuration utility user, which is then reflected back to the victim and executed by the web browser. If the exploit is successful, an attacker can run JavaScript in the context of the currently logged-in user.
