Several XSS vulnerabilities were found in the code.
It was possible to conduct a XSS attack using crafted URLs or POST parameters on several pages.
We consider this vulnerability to be serious.
If the auth_type directive is set to 'config' and the directory is not protected, these attacks are more likely to succeed; otherwise, an attacker would need to obtain a valid token via another flaw on the server to be able to exploit these vulnerabilities.
