                                            `F5 BIG-IP Web Management ASM Security Report XSS  
  
  
Product: F5 BIG-IP Application Security Manager  
http://www.f5.com/products/big-ip/product-modules/application-security-manager.html  
  
  
The F5 BIG-IP ASM web management interface contains a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the Security Report function. Parameter report_type in page /dms/policy/rep_request.php is not sanitized before it gets embedded in the HTML output as a hidden form value.  
  
Example:  
https://(target)/dms/policy/rep_request.php?report_type=%22%3E%3Cbody+onload=alert(%26quot%3BXSS%26quot%3B)%3E%3Cfoo+  
  
  
The vulnerability has been identified in version 9.4.3. However, other versions may be also affected.  
  
  
Solution:  
Administrators should not browse untrusted sites while logged into the BIG-IP web management interface. It is not possible to log out of the interface so it is important to shut down the browser after the interface is no longer needed. Closing the interface browser window or removing the BIG-IP cookie is not sufficient.
