Description of the vulnerability 

The ArcSight Connector and Logger products allows the administrator to import a list of computers from a file:
 - System Admin
 - Network
 - Hosts
 - Import from Local File

However, imported names are then directly displayed by the service, without being filtered. An attacker can thus create a file containing a computer list with JavaScript, which is then inserted in web pages generated by the service.

An attacker can therefore invite the victim to import a malicious file with ArcSight Connector or Logger, in order to execute JavaScript code in his browser.
