A Cross Site Scripting vulnerability occurs when an attacker can inject
JavaScript in context of the web application. The vulnerability occurs when
user input is not sanitized before it’s returned back to the user. Because
JavaScript is able to access your DOM (Document Object Model) an attacker
can craft a JavaScript payload which can be used to steal the victim’s
session cookies and send it to a domain that they control thereby hijacking
the session.

The vulnerability exists in "*fileName*" parameter reflected in application
response were later being reflected in different parts of application
