Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Opmantek Open-AudIT 4.0.1 is affected by cross-site scripting (XSS). When outputting SQL statements for debugging, a maliciously crafted query can trigger an XSS attack. This attack only succeeds if the user is already logged in to Open-AudIT before they click the malicious link.
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.
