# [CVE-2017-7998] Gespage stored cross-site-scripting (XSS) vulnerability

## Description

Gespage is web solution providing a printer portal. Official Website:

The web application does not properly filter several parameters sent by
users, allowing XSS code injection.
These vulnerabilities allow attackers to inject code inside the client
web browser, such as malicious scripts in Javascript. Exploitation leads
to a full takeover of the web browser and potentially of the operating

**CVE ID**: CVE-2017-7998

**Access Vector**: remote

**Security Risk**: high

**Vulnerability**: CWE-79

**CVSS Base Score**:7.3

**CVSS Vector String**: CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L

### Proof of Concept 1 (stored XSS)

From the admin panel, it is possible to add a printer with a crafted name:

"><script>alert("printer xss")</script>

If an authenticated user loads the "My Jobs"
("https://URL:7181/gespage/users/prnow.jsp") page, his browser processes
the Javascript payload, triggering the "printer xss" pop-up message.

### Proof of Concept 2 (reflected XSS)

From the registration page, it is possible to inject malicious web code
inside all parameters. The POST request looks like the following:

POST /gespage/webapp/users/user_reg.jsp HTTP/1.1
