Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
The ShareThis Dashboard for Google Analytics WordPress plugin before 2.5.2 does not sanitise or escape the 'ga_action' parameter in the stats view before outputting it back in an attribute when the plugin is connected to a Google Analytics account, leading to a reflected Cross-Site Scripting issue which will be executed in the context of a logged in administrator
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.
