K97285349: XSS vulnerability in the BIG-IP and Enterprise Manager Configuration
utilities CVE-2016-7469

Security Advisory

Original Publication Date: Jan 05, 2017

Updated Date: Jan 20, 2018

Security Advisory Description

A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the BIG-IP Configuration
utility device name change page allows an authenticated user to inject
arbitrary web script or HTML. Exploitation requires Resource Administrator or
Administrator privileges, and it could cause the Configuration utility client
to become unstable. (CVE-2016-7469)

Impact

This vulnerability allows an authenticated attacker to execute a cross-site
scripting (XSS) attack. By sending specially crafted input, the attacker can
also cause the Configuration utility to become unstable.

Security Advisory Status

F5 Product Development has assigned ID 621337 (BIG-IP) and ID 623162
(Enterprise Manager) to this vulnerability. Additionally, BIG-IP iHealth may
list Heuristic H623207 on the Diagnostics > Identified > Medium screen.

Security Advisory Recommended Actions

If you are running a version listed in the Versions known to be vulnerable
column, you can eliminate this vulnerability by upgrading to a version listed
in the Versions known to be not vulnerable column. If the table lists only an
older version than what you are currently running, or does not list a
non-vulnerable version, then no upgrade candidate currently exists.

Mitigation

To mitigate this vulnerability, you should permit management access to F5
products only over a secure network and restrict access for affected systems to
trusted users. To do so, refer to K13309: Restricting access to the
Configuration utility by source IP address (11.x - 13.x) and K13092: Overview
of securing access to the BIG-IP system.
