extjs getTip() Cross Site Scripting

extjs versions prior to 6.6.0 suffer from a cross site scripting vulnerability.

MD5 | 6918d7270bd31d8743adad33428062bc

A XSS vulnerability exists in the getTip() method of Action Columns.

The Ext JS framework brings no built-in XSS protection, meaning that
developers are responsible for sanitizing their output. However. the method
above takes HTML-escaped data and un-escapes it. Therefore if the tooltip
contains user-controlled data a XSS is possible.

A fiddle demonstrating the issue can be found here:

The vendor tracked this issue with the internal ID EXTJS-26864.

MITRE assigned CVE-2018-8046 to this issue.

This issue has been fixed in version 6.6.0, the release notes are available
