Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
The Post Grid WordPress plugin before 2.1.16 does not sanitise and escape the post_types parameter before outputting it back in the response of the post_grid_update_taxonomies_terms_by_posttypes AJAX action, available to any authenticated users, leading to a Reflected Cross-Site Scripting
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.
