Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
TYPO3 is an open source PHP based web content management system. Versions 8.0.0 through 8.7.40, 9.0.0 through 9.5.27, 10.0.0 through 10.4.17, and 11.0.0 through 11.3.0 have a cross-site scripting vulnerability. When settings for _backend layouts_ are not properly encoded, the corresponding grid view is vulnerable to persistent cross-site scripting. A valid backend user account is needed to exploit this vulnerability. TYPO3 versions 9.5.28, 10.4.18, 11.3.1 contain a patch for this vulnerability.
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.
