Technical Details & Description:
A client-side cross site scripting web vulnerability is detected in the official ZAPms v1.42 Content Management System.
The non-persistent cross site scripting web vulnerability allows an attacker to manipulate client side web application to browser GET method requests.

The vulnerability is located in the `name` value of the list GET method request. Remote attackers are able to manipulate 
the name value to execute client-side script code (application-side).

Exploitation of the vulnerability requires no privileged application user account but low or medium user interaction. Successful exploitation of 
the vulnerability results in session hijacking, client-side phishing, client-side external redirects or malware loads and client-side manipulation 
of the vulnerable module context.

Request Method(s):
				[+] [GET]

Vulnerable Parameter(s):
				[+] name ( rFmScr, eTt, newObj1 & name_new )

Proof of Concept (PoC):
The client-side cross site scripting web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privileged application user account and 
with low or medium user interaction. For demonstration or reproduce ...

Standard: GET


PoC: rFmScr, eTt, newObj1, name_new & name
