Juniper SA Series Cross Site Scripting Issue

o PROBLEM DETAILS
The Juniper Secure Access (SA) web interface allows users to manage the
bookmarks on their landing page. This bookmark management functionality
does not filter user input properly and can allow cross site scripting
Upon modification or creation of a bookmark, the editbk.cgi script is
requested with a parameter named "row". This parameter identifies the
bookmark in question and its value is used in the server response. It is a
flaw in the input handling of this "row" parameter that makes the appliance
vulnerable to a cross site scripting attack.
Successful exploitation could allow a remote attacker to hijack an
authenticated session between a victim and the Juniper SA web interface.
Usage of the Single Sign-On (SSO) feature will severely increase the impact
as SSO automatically grants the hijacked session access to other systems
(e.g. typically used in combination with Outlook Web Access).
o AFFECTED SYSTEMS
Juniper SA appliances running Juniper IVE OS 6.0 or higher
Juniper released IVE updates 6.3R7, 6.4R5 and 6.5R2 which fix this issue.
The updates and installation instructions are available for Juniper
customers on the Juniper website (note: login required)
Alternatively, the bookmark functionality can be temporary disabled until
the Juniper update has been applied. A Juniper administrator can disable
the bookmark functionality via the Central Manager by unchecking the "User
can add bookmarks" option in the "Web" tab of the active user roles.
This vulnerability was discovered by Niels Heinen from the security testing
