Cisco discloses a bug in the Prime Collaboration Deployment solution

Cisco is working on a patch for a bug in the Prime Collaboration Deployment solution that was reported by a member of NATO’s Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

Cisco informed its customers that it’s working on a patch for cross-site scripting (XSS) issue, tracked as CVE-2023-20060 (CVSS score 6.1), affecting its Prime Collaboration Deployment product.

The vulnerability was discovered by Pierre Vivegnis, a security researcher at NATO’s Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

Cisco Prime Collaboration Deployment allows a user to perform tasks (such as migration or upgrade) on servers that are in the inventory. 

The vulnerability resides in the web-based management interface of Prime Collaboration Deployment, an unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit the flaw to conduct a cross-site scripting attack against a user of the interface.

“This vulnerability exists because the web-based management interface does not properly validate user-supplied input. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by persuading a user of the interface to click a crafted link.” reads the advisory published by the IT giant. “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.”

Cisco said that there are no workarounds to address the vulnerability, the good news is that the company is not aware of attacks in the wild exploiting this vulnerability.

“The Cisco PSIRT is not aware of any public announcements or malicious use of the vulnerability that is described in this advisory.” concludes the advisory.
