  • XSS - Cross-site Scripting (Post Authentication) :
  • The application is vulnerable to cross-site scripting after authentication. The script does not properly
    validate the input parameters, allowing scripts to be injected and then used to compromise client's
    confidential information, such as the Session ID. In addition, more sophisticated phishing attacks make use of this vulnerability to even trick security aware users.
  • Seen when </script><script>alert1</script> is added in Infoview URL post login of the user.
