Reference to Vulnerability Disclosure Policy:

Vulnerability Description:
Multiple Persistent Cross-Site vulnerabilities were found in Endpoint Protector v4.0.4.2 [Virtual
Appliance], because the application fails to sanitize the response before it is returned to the user.
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary script and HTML code in a user's browser session. This may
allow the attacker to steal the user's cookie and to launch further attacks.
The parameters "client_device[name]" and "client_device[description]" in /index.php/clientdevice/create are not properly sanitized.

The parameters "client_machine[name]", "client_machine[domain]","client_machine[workgroup]" and "client_machine[location]" in /index.php/clientmachine/create are not properly sanitized.
The parameter "group[name]" in /index.php/mgroup/create is not properly sanitized.

Other parameters might also be affected.

Proof of Concept:
* The parameter "client_device[name]" in the POST request has been set to:
* The parameter "client_device[description]" in the POST request has been
set to:

An affected user may unintentionally execute scripts or actions written by
