Doc Text:
A flaw was found in the pki-core's Token Processing Service (TPS) where it did not properly sanitize Profile IDs, enabling a Stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability when the profile ID is printed. An attacker with sufficient permissions could trick an authenticated victim into executing a specially crafted Javascript code.

Description Guilherme de Almeida Suckevicz 2019-12-06 17:02:14 UTC
A flaw was found in Profile ID field while adding new profile at TPS's web page, when adding new profile (Profile ID) input field not getting filtered or sanitize the specially crafted javascript like <script>alert(document.domain)</script> and being stored/triggered everytime with domain name in response. This user input is not being sanitized and therefore it is vulnerable to a Stored XSS.

Comment 7 Salvatore Bonaccorso 2020-02-07 06:30:14 UTC
Do you know if this was reported in the upstream issue tracker and there is a fix?

Comment 8 Cedric Buissart 2020-02-07 14:38:00 UTC
Upstream is aware. There is currently no fix. I will check for upstream issue tracker.

However, the security consequences are very limited. 
e.g. : Thanks to the webUI using client side TLS authentication, stealing a cookie will not be of much use to the attacker. 
At the moment, the only concerns are defacing and minor information disclosure (user information from the victim, such as name, email and roles, which the attacker can probably have access to via other means given the privilege requirements for storing the XSS in the first place).

If/when there is a fix upstream, it will be posted on this bug tracker.

I hope this helps!
