Summary

  o 
    A vulnerability in the web-based management interface of Cisco Content
    Security Management Appliance (SMA) Software could allow an
    unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS)
    attack against a user of the web-based management interface.

    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 maliciously crafted link. A successful exploit could allow the
    attacker to execute arbitrary script code in the context of the affected
    interface or access sensitive, browser-based information.

    There are no workarounds that address this vulnerability.
