A cross site scripting issue has been found during proactive security testing in the Pulse Connect Secure (PCS) product. The cause of this issue is due to incorrect validation of user input sent to the PCS web server. This issue exists on a file that pertains to the JSAM (Java Secure Access Manager) feature, which is only accessible by an authenticated user. Whether the JSAM feature is enabled or not, the page can still be accessed by an authenticated user.
The following PCS software releases have a fix for this issue: PCS: 7.0R8, 7.1R5 or higher. We recommend upgrading your PCS software to resolve this security vulnerability.

There are no workarounds for this issue. The only way to mitigate the issue is to upgrade to a release of PCS software that contains the fix.
