How to fix?

Upgrade ag-grid to version 5.0.0 or higher.


ag-grid is an advanced Data Grid / Data Table supporting Javascript / React / AngularJS / Web Components.

Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to HTML Injection. ag-grid used mozilla's Element.innerHTML, which is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks when used within a user-inputted value. In this case an attacker could insert a malicious username and initiate a XSS attack, like:

<span onclick="alert('hacked!')">John Smith</span>
