PCI CGI vulnerability


We're getting PCI security alerts on the Cherry web engine. Is there some method of resolving this issue - i.e. install a later version of the web engine?



Here's the alert:

Server IP = X.X.X.X

THREAT:When the service made an HTTP request for a CGI file that was found to
exist on the Web server host, the Web server returned an HTTP redirection page
containing unsanitized user-supplied input to at least one of the CGI file's
parameters. Thus the host is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

A list of CGI vulnerable files can be found in the Result section below.

IMPACT:By exploiting this vulnerability, malicious scripts could be executed in
a client browser which processes the content of an HTTP redirection page
returned by the Web server.

SOLUTION:Contact the vendor/author of the CGI file(s) for a solution to this

Host: X.X.X.X:8000

HTTP/1.1 303 See Other

I tried hitting that URL, and all I got back in my browser was a search page with this:

Set as the search.

I don't think there is an exploitable vulnerability here, but I will file this with the Splunk Product Security Vulnerabilities
