CWE-79

Summary

A vulnerability in the web framework of Cisco Unity Connection could allow an
unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a reflected cross-site scripting
(XSS) attack against a user of the web interface of an affected system.

The vulnerability is due to insufficient input validation of certain
parameters that are passed to the affected software via the HTTP GET and HTTP
POST methods. An attacker who can convince a user to follow an
attacker-supplied link could execute arbitrary script or HTML code in the
user's browser in the context of an affected site.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
