Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
Apache Superset is affected by Cross Site Scripting vulnerability. Upload data forms do not correctly render user input leading to possible XSS attack vectors that can be performed by authenticated users with database connection update permissions. This issue affects Apache Superset versions through 1.5.2 and 2.0.0.
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.
