Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in Cacti 0.8.7e allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors related to (1) graph.php, (2) include/top_graph_header.php, (3) lib/html_form.php, and (4) lib/timespan_settings.php, as demonstrated by the (a) graph_end or (b) graph_start parameters to graph.php; (c) the date1 parameter in a tree action to graph_view.php; and the (d) page_refresh and (e) default_dual_pane_width parameters to graph_settings.php.
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.
