Vulnerability Description

NetMRI contains a cross-site scripting (XSS) issue whereby portions of the GET request are echoed back in an error page. This allows scripting tags to be executed by the browser to perform XSS attacks. Such an attack would require convincing a user to click on a specially crafted link.

On February 18, 2009, Netcordia released a patch named "CrossScriptPatch.gpg" to address this vulnerability in all currently supported versions of NetMRI through v3.0.1. Customers can acquire the patch through the normal mechanisms or contact Netcordia Technical Support (support@netcordia.com) for assistance. Additionally, the necessary changes will be incorporated in future versions beginning with NetMRI v3.0.2.
