Cross-site Scripting (XSS) - Generic in snipe/snipe-it


Reported on

Nov 5th 2021


XSS in bulk audit function via the asset tag parameter

Proof of Concept

1: Go to http://<SNIPE_IT_APP>/hardware/bulkaudit feature
2: Use <script>alert(document.domain)</script> as "Asset Tag" parameter
3: Click "Audit", the XSS should be triggered via the message Asset Tag [ASSET_TAG] not found.


This vulnerability is capable of tricking users without knowledge of XSS to key in the malicious payload and thus steal the cookie or perform actions on behalf of them via Javascript execution. Due to CSRF protections, I am unable to escalate this further but thought I should report to you just in case you care about it.
