Description (partial)

Cisco Finesse Server contains a vulnerability that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to conduct a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack
against the user of the web interface of the affected system. 

The vulnerability is due to insufficient input validation of some parameters passed via HTTP GET or POST methods. An attacker may be able to
exploit this vulnerability by intercepting the user packets and injecting the malicious code.

Cisco would like to credit Marcela Benetrix of the Security Assurance team with the responsible disclosure of the issues
addressed in this security notice.
