Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
An XSS issue was discovered in Designer Studio in Pegasystems Pega Platform 7.1.7, 7.1.8, 7.1.9, 7.1.10, 7.2, 7.2.1, and 7.2.2. A user with developer credentials can insert malicious code (up to 64 characters) into a text field in Designer Studio, after establishing context. Designer Studio is the developer workbench for Pega Platform. That XSS payload will execute when other developers visit the affected pages.
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.
