Hello Team,

I would like to report a vulnerability (cross-site-scripting) which I have observed in current version v10.5.4 and before.

Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) allows attacker to inject the malicious JavaScript as user input and then malicious script can access any cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information associated with impacted applications.

Please refer for more details.

Impacted URL is http://[your_webserver_ip]/opencms/system/workplace/admin/accounts/user_new.jsp

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Browse to Quick Launch -> Account Management -> User Management -> New User
  2. Insert TestXSS<img+src=x+onmouseover=alert(document.domain)> in First Name and Last Name field.


  1. Inserted JavaScript payload will be executed on all pages where user information is displayed such as user confirmation, user list, user view etc.


Version details:


Best Regards
