Cisco Unified Communications Manager Cross-Frame Scripting Vulnerability


Advisory ID:

First Published:
2017 October 4 16:00 GMT

Version 1.0:

No workarounds available

Cisco Bug IDs:

CVSS Score:
Base 4.7



A vulnerability in the web-based UI of Cisco Unified Communications Manager 
could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute a cross-frame 
scripting (XFS) attack.

The vulnerability exists because the affected software does not provide 
sufficient protections for HTML inline frames (iframes). An attacker could 
exploit this vulnerability by directing a user of the affected software to an
attacker-controlled web page that contains a malicious HTML inline frame. A 
successful exploit could allow the attacker to conduct click-jacking or other
types of client-side browser attacks.

There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
