Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')
The "Survey Maker – Best WordPress Survey Plugin" plugin for WordPress is vulnerable to Stored Cross-Site Scripting via survey answers in versions up to, and including, 3.1.3 due to insufficient input sanitization and output escaping. This makes it possible for unauthenticated attackers to inject arbitrary web scripts when submitting quizzes that will execute whenever a user accesses the submissions page.
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.
