Summary

A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Adaptive
Security Appliance (ASA) could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack against a user of the web-based
management interface of an affected device.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient validation of user-supplied input
by the web-based management interface of an affected device. An attacker
could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface
to click a crafted link. A successful exploit could allow the attacker
to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the interface or allow
the attacker to access sensitive browser-based information.

Additional information about XSS attacks and potential mitigations can be found at:
