Magento Magento 1.2
Magento is prone to multiple cross-site scripting vulnerabilities because it fails to sufficiently sanitize user-supplied input.
Attacker-supplied HTML and script code would execute in the context of the affected site, potentially allowing the attacker to steal cookie-based authentication credentials.
Magento 1.2.0 is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
An attacker can exploit these issues by enticing an unsuspecting victim to follow a malicious URI.
The following examples are available:
Email address: "><script>alert('xss')</script>
Currently we are not aware of any vendor-supplied patches. If you feel we are in error or if you are aware of more recent information, please mail us at:
