Juniper Security Bulletin - Junos Pulse Secure Access Service and Access Control Service

Number: AV14-066
Date: 17 September 2014


The purpose of this advisory is to bring attention to a Software security update for Juniper's SSL VPN/UAC products.


A cross site scripting issue has been found in the Juniper Networks SSL VPN/UAC products.  Successful exploit of this vulnerability could allow an attacker to dynamically create arbitrary active content which could be rendered in the user's browser, leading to possible session theft, service disruption, or other information disclosure. The problem is a result of incorrect user input validation on the SSL VPN/UAC web server.  The issue exists within a web page that is only accessible by an authenticated administrator session.

The issue is fixed in SA/MAG (IVE OS) releases: 8.0r1, 7.4r3, and 7.1r16, and all subsequent releases. UAC OS: 5.0r1, 4.4r3, and 4.1r8, and all subsequent releases.

Suggested Action

CCIRC recommends that owner/operators test and deploy the vendor released updates or workarounds to affected platforms accordingly.
