Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
An issue was discovered on Mitsubishi Electric ME-RTU devices through 2.02 and INEA ME-RTU devices through 3.0. A number of stored cross-site script (XSS) vulnerabilities allow an attacker to inject malicious code directly into the application. An example input variable vulnerable to stored XSS is SerialInitialModemString in the index.php page.
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.
