Multiple F5 BIG-IP Products CVE-2019-6657 Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability

Risk

High

Date Discovered

October 31, 2019

Description

Multiple F5 BIG-IP Products are prone to a cross-site scripting vulnerability because they fail to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input. An attacker may leverage this issue to execute arbitrary script code in the browser of an unsuspecting user in the context of the affected site. This may allow the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials and launch other attacks.

Recommendations

Block external access at the network boundary, unless external parties require service.
If global access isn't needed, filter access to the affected computer at the network boundary. Restricting access to only trusted computers and networks might greatly reduce the likelihood of successful exploits.

Deploy network intrusion detection systems to monitor network traffic for malicious activity.
Deploy NIDS to detect and block attacks and anomalous activity such as requests containing suspicious URI sequences. Since the webserver may log such requests, review logs regularly.

Do not follow links provided by unknown or untrusted sources.
Web users should be cautious about following links to websites that are provided by unfamiliar or suspicious sources. Filtering HTML from emails may help remove a possible vector for transmitting malicious links to users.

Set web browser security to disable the execution of JavaScript.
Since a successful exploit of this issue allows malicious script code to execute in web clients, consider disabling support for script code and active content within a client browser. Note that this mitigation tactic might adversely affect legitimate websites that rely on the execution of browser-based script code.

Updates are available. Please see the references or vendor advisory for more information.
