Description Andrej Nemec 2018-11-20 15:54:17 UTC
It was possible in CKEditor before 4.11.0 to execute XSS inside CKEditor after persuading the victim to: (i) switch CKEditor to source mode, then (ii) paste a specially crafted HTML code, prepared by the attacker, into the opened CKEditor source area, and (iii) switch back to WYSIWYG mode.
