Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')


Severity Medium
Score 6.1/10


iziModal is a modal plugin with jQuery. Versions prior to 1.6.1 are vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) when handling untrusted modal titles. An attacker who is able to influence the field "title" when creating a "iziModal" instance is able to supply arbitrary "html" or "javascript" code that will be rendered in the context of a user, potentially leading to XSS.

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.
