CWE-94 Open this link in a new tab

How to fix?

Upgrade quill to version 1.0.4 or higher.


quill is powerful, rich text editor. Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution due to not sanitizing user input when in the pasteHTML() function. The function was renamed, deprecated and was set to be removed in version 2.0.0.

var quill = new Quill('#editor', {
  theme: 'snow'

quill.pasteHTML('<img src=// onerror="alert(&#39;Not Found!&#39;)">');
