Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in Apache Struts 2.0.x before 220.127.116.11 and 2.1.x before 2.1.1 allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors associated with improper handling of (1) " (double quote) characters in the href attribute of an s:a tag and (2) parameters in the action attribute of an s:url tag.
CWE-79 - Cross Site Scripting
Cross-Site Scripting, commonly referred to as XSS, is the most dominant class of vulnerabilities. It allows an attacker to inject malicious code into a pregnable web application and victimize its users. The exploitation of such a weakness can cause severe issues such as account takeover, and sensitive data exfiltration. Because of the prevalence of XSS vulnerabilities and their high rate of exploitation, it has remained in the OWASP top 10 vulnerabilities for years.
