ESA-2013-031: RSA Authentication Agent Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) 

EMC Identifier: ESA-2013-031

CVE Identifier: CVE-2013-0942

Severity Rating: CVSS v2 Base Score: 6.8 (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)

Affected Products:

RSA Authentication Agent contains a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability 
that could potentially be exploited by malicious users.


A cross-site scripting vulnerability could be potentially exploited by a 
malicious attacker for conducting scripting attacks in RSA Authentication 
Agent. The vulnerability could be exploited by getting an authenticated user 
to click on specially-crafted links that a malicious attacker can embed within
an e-mail message, web page, or other source. This may lead to execution of 
malicious html requests or scripts in the context of the authenticated user.


The following products contain the resolution to this issue:

    RSA Authentication Agent 7.1.1 for Web for Internet Information Services
    RSA Authentication Agent 7.1.1 for Web for Apache
