CVE-2022-42119 Certain Liferay products are vulnerable to Cross Site Scripting (XSS) via the Commerce module

CVE-2022-42119 Certain Liferay products are vulnerable to Cross Site Scripting (XSS) via the Commerce module

In some cases malicious users can inject malicious scripts into the system through the Commerce REST API. An attacker can exploit this by injecting a script that is intended to be run by another user and is not filtered through the application. This can be done in many ways, such as injecting a script into an order form or a product detail page. The attacker can also inject a script into a product detail page that injects a script into the order form. This has the potential to cause significant issues for a company if the attacker is able to exploit this vulnerability. This vulnerability has been assigned the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifier CVE-2019-6347.
