Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
XAMPP 1.8.1 does not properly restrict access to xampp/lang.php, which allows remote attackers to modify xampp/lang.tmp and execute cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via the WriteIntoLocalDisk method.
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.
