Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
The "content" field in the "regular post" page of the "add content" menu under "dashboard" in htmly 2.8.1 has a storage cross site scripting (XSS) vulnerability. It allows remote attackers to send authenticated post-http requests to add / content and inject arbitrary web scripts or HTML through special content.
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.
