Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Microsoft SharePoint Enterprise Server 2013 SP1 and Microsoft SharePoint Enterprise Server 2016 allow an attacker to exploit a cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability by sending a specially crafted request to an affected SharePoint server, due to how SharePoint Server sanitizes web requests, aka "Microsoft Office SharePoint XSS Vulnerability". This CVE ID is unique from CVE-2017-11775 and CVE-2017-11777.
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.
