Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Multiple XSS vulnerabilities exist in the Backup & Restore module \ v126.96.36.199 through v188.8.131.52 for FreePBX, as shown at /admin/config.php?display=backup on the FreePBX Administrator web site. An attacker can modify the id parameter of the backup configuration screen and embed malicious XSS code via a link. When another user (such as an admin) clicks the link, the XSS payload will render and execute in the context of the victim user's account.
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.
