TYPO3 is an open-source web content management system. In TYPO3, the Form Designer backend module of the Form Framework is vulnerable to cross-site scripting. A valid backend user account with access to the form module is needed to exploit this vulnerability. This issue affects typo3/cms 10.x through 10.4.28, and 11.x through 11.5.10; typo3/cms-core 8.x through 8.7.32, 9.x through 9.5.31, 10.x through 10.4.28, and 11.x through 11.5.10.
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.
