Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
A reflected Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) flaw was found in RESTEasy in all versions of RESTEasy up to 4.6.0.Final, where it did not properly handle URL encoding when calling @javax.ws.rs.PathParam without any @Produces MediaType. This flaw allows an attacker to launch a reflected XSS attack. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to data confidentiality and integrity.
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.
