High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab discovered two XSS vulnerabilities in Hero Framework, which can be exploited to perform cross-site scripting attacks against vulnerable application.
1.1 The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitisation of user-supplied data in "username" HTTP GET parameter passed to "/users/login" URL. A remote attacker can trick a logged-in user to open a specially crafted link and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in victim's browser in context of the vulnerable website.
The exploitation example below uses the same XSS payload as above encoded in base64 to display user's cookies:
