Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Symfony 2.0.X before 2.0.24, 2.1.X before 2.1.12, 2.2.X before 2.2.5, and 2.3.X before 2.3.3 have an issue in the HttpFoundation component. The Host header can be manipulated by an attacker when the framework is generating an absolute URL. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to inject malicious content into the Web application page and conduct various attacks.
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.
