Medium Web Application Scanning Plugin ID 98393


jQuery UI < 1.12.0 Cross-Site Scripting


According to its self-reported version number, jQuery UI is prior to 1.12.0. Therefore, it may be affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability due to improper escaping of the closeText property.

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


Upgrade to jQuery UI version 1.12.0 or later.
