Acknowledgement From Inflectra

As Cross-Site Scripting is one of my most loved imperfections I frequently test in web application and the greater part of the circumstances I got my outcome. Same issue I have recently found in Inflectra with the assistance of one of my companions.

Most of the time Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities exist in Forms, Search Results, Support and Forms fields. I have likewise established the Stored XSS in the Support Help Center of Inflectra.

Vulnerable Url:

User Agent: Mozilla / Chrome / Safari / Android

Bug Type: Stored XSS (Cross-Site Scripting)

Fix: Modify your input validation.

Date: 6th Feb - 17

Current Status: Patched

Steps To Produce:

  1. Goto
  2. In the Forms, field selects any Category and after that select any problem/question.
  3. Click on the Reply Button on that question and here select Insert Table option.
  4. Insert XSS (Cross-Site Scripting) Payload in every single table field as appeared in the picture. Then click Insert Table. Payload "><img src=# onerror=alert('XSS') /> You'll see the popup executes and the page is powerless against XSS.

At that point as I Inserted Table the code is executed and a popup shows up.
