Security Advisory Details

Vulnerability Descriptions

Stored XSS in Tags element

Zammad comes with a functionality to add Tags to Tickets. Added Tags are shown to the Agent in the Ticket view. However, when rendering the Tags no proper quoting is in place so the raw text is added to the DOM and rendered. This allows an attacker to store malicious code to a Ticket that will be evaluated when opening a Ticket.

Special 🙏 and 🤘 and ❤️ to:
