VMWare Cloud - Cross Site Scripting

What is the "VMWare Cloud - Cross Site Scripting?"

The "VMWare Cloud - Cross Site Scripting" module is designed to detect cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in VMWare Cloud. Cross-site scripting (XSS) is a type of security vulnerability that allows attackers to inject malicious scripts into web pages viewed by other users. This module specifically targets VMWare Cloud, a cloud computing platform provided by VMWare.

This module is classified as having a medium severity level, indicating that the vulnerability it detects could potentially have a significant impact on the security of the system.


A successful cross-site scripting attack on VMWare Cloud could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary scripts within the context of the affected user's browser. This can lead to various malicious activities, such as stealing sensitive information, manipulating web content, or performing actions on behalf of the user.

How the module works?

The "VMWare Cloud - Cross Site Scripting" module works by sending a specific HTTP request to the target VMWare Cloud instance and analyzing the response for indicators of a cross-site scripting vulnerability. The module checks for the presence of certain patterns in the response body, headers, and the HTTP status code to determine if the vulnerability exists.

For example, the module may send a GET request to the "/login/?redirectTo=/tenant/e&service=</script><script>alert(document.domain)</script>" path. It then checks if the response body contains the strings "</script><script>alert(document.domain)</script>" and "let tokens = \"". Additionally, it verifies that the response header includes the "text/html" content type and that the HTTP status code is 200.

If all the matching conditions are met, the module reports the presence of a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the VMWare Cloud instance.

Note: This module is a part of the Vidoc platform and is not affiliated with VMWare or its official documentation.
