A stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in PHProjekt PhpSimplyGest v1.3.0 (and related products from same vendor, like "MyProjects") allows
attacker to execute arbitrary web scripts or HTML.

Injecting persistent javascript code inside the title description (or content) while creating a project, todo, timecard, estimates, report or finding,
it will be triggered once page gets loaded.

Steps to reproduce:

Click on Projects and add or edit an existing one,

Insert the following PoC inside the Title

<<SCRIPT>alert("XSS here");//\<</SCRIPT>

Click on 'Send'.

If a user visits the website dashboard, as well as project summary page, the javascript code will be rendered.
