Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities allow a third party to manipulate the content or behaviour of a web application in a user's browser, without compromising the underlying system.
Different Cross-Site Scripting related vulnerabilities are also classified under this category, including "script insertion" and "cross-site request forgery".
Cross-Site Scripting vulnerabilities are often used against specific users of a website to steal their credentials or to conduct spoofing attacks.
A vulnerability has been discovered in the nBill component for Joomla!, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
Input passed via the "message" parameter to index.php (when "option" is set to "com_nbill" and "task" is set to "generated-view") is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.3.2. Other versions may also be affected.
