Vulnerability CVE-2021-24201


Published: 2021-04-05

Description:
In the Elementor Website Builder WordPress plugin before 3.1.4, the column element (includes/elements/column.php) accepts an ?????html_tag?????? parameter. Although the element control lists a fixed set of possible html tags, it is possible for a user with Contributor or above permissions to send a modified ?????save_builder?????? request containing JavaScript in the ?????html_tag?????? parameter, which is not filtered and is output without escaping. This JavaScript will then be executed when the saved page is viewed or previewed.

Type:

CWE-79

(Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting'))
