                                            `PR09-16: Juniper Secure Access series (Juniper IVE) XSS  
Vulnerability found: 12th October 2009  
Severity: Medium (Script injection)  
There is a Cross-site Scripting vulnerability on Juniper, IVE web interface.  
Procheckup has found by making a malformed request to the IVE Web  
interface without authentication, that a vanilla cross site scripting  
(XSS) attack is possible.  
Successfully tested on:  
Juniper Networks IVE version 6.5R1 (Build 14599)  
Model SA-2000  
Proof of concept:</script><script>alert(1)</script>  
An attacker may be able to cause execution of malicious scripting code  
in the browser of a user who clicks on a link or visits a malicious  
webpage. The malicious code would run in the security context of the  
vulnerable website.  
This type of attack can result in non-persistent defacement of the  
target site, or the redirection of confidential information (i.e.:  
passwords or session IDs) to unauthorised third parties.  
Ensure that the firewall's management interface is disabled on the  
Internet connected interface, by disabling WeBUI within service  
options on the Internet connected interface.
