Cross-site Scripting (XSS) - Stored in yogeshojha/rengine


Reported on

Aug 29th 2021

✍️ Description

'Delete Scheduled Task' confirmation model executes javascript as part of the name of a scan engine.

🕵️‍♂️ Proof of Concept

  1. Name a scan engine as a XSS payload. Example: <img src=x onerror=confirm(document.domain)>
  2. Schedule a scan for any target using the created scan engine.
  3. Try to delete the scheduled task

The fix is on the way, I had to remove the verbose message, the scan engine name was being passed as a parameter to JS function, which could be easily bypassed using ' or ` or ) chars. I guess it is wise to remove that param.
