                Carbon Black is an endpoint security solution that provides administrative functionality and other features via a dedicated web application. There is a vulnerability in the product's web interface due to insufficient server-side validation. An attacker can create a user with malicious username content, and this username is persisted to the server. When an administrator views a list of users, the malicious username is loaded and a cross-site script is injected into the page. An attacker could exploit this issue to direct a victim to a malicious website or steal the victim's session information.
