0.   Revision History

v1.0  2016-04-26 Initial SA draft

I.   Background

pfSenseĀ® software is a free network firewall distribution based on the
FreeBSD operating system.  The pfSense software distribution includes third-
party free software packages for additional functionality, and provides most of
the functionality of common commercial firewalls.

The majority of users of pfSense software have never installed or used a stock
FreeBSD system.  Unlike similar GNU/Linux-based firewall distributions, there
is no need for any UNIX knowledge.  The command line is never used, and there
is no need to ever manually edit any rule sets. Instead, pfSense software
includes a web interface for the configuration of all included components.
Users familiar with commercial firewalls will quickly understand the web
interface, while those unfamiliar with commercial-grade firewalls may encounter
a short learning curve.

II.  Problem Description

A Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability was found in the DHCP lease display
in the pfSense software WebGUI on version 2.3.3-p1 and earlier.

If a malicious client submits a hostname containing HTML, it is displayed to
the user viewing the DHCP leases without encoding.

III. Impact

Due to the lack of proper encoding on the affected variable succeptible to XSS,
arbitrary JavaScript can be executed in the user's browser. The user's session
cookie or other information from the session may be compromised.

IV.  Workaround

No workaround.

V.   Solution

Upgrade to pfSense software version 2.3.4 or a later version. This upgrade may
be performed in the web interface or from the console.
