A potential stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities have been identified in registry UI.


When a user adds a new registry resource, a malicious user could inject an executable script as inputs in registry UI which leads to a stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities.


By leveraging an XSS attack, an attacker can make the browser get redirected to a malicious website, make changes in the UI of the web page, retrieve information from the browser or harm otherwise. However, since all the session related sensitive cookies are set with httpOnly flag and protected, session hijacking or similar attacks would not be possible.
