Updated Date: 03/30/2015


Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in the tree view (pl_tree.php) 
feature in Application Security Manager (ASM) in F5 BIG-IP 11.3.0 allows 
remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML by accessing a crafted
URL during automatic policy generation. (CVE-2014-9342)


The BIG-IP ASM automatic policy builder may allow modification by unauthorized
