Synopsis

jQuery 1.2.0 < 3.5.0 Cross-Site Scripting

Description

According to its self-reported version number, jQuery is at least 1.2.0 and prior to 3.5.0. Therefore, it may be affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability via the regex operation in jQuery.htmlPrefilter.

Note that the scanner has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to jQuery version 3.5.0 or later.
