TYPO3-CORE-SA-2022-004: Cross-Site Scripting in Frontend Login Mailer

Categories: Development, TYPO3 CMS Created by Oliver Hader
It has been discovered that TYPO3 CMS is vulnerable to cross-site scripting.

Problem Description

User submitted content was used without being properly encoded in HTML emails sent to users. The actually affected components were mail clients used to view those messages.


Update to TYPO3 versions 9.5.35 ELTS, 10.4.29, 11.5.11 that fix the problem described above.


Thanks to Christian Seifert who reported this issue and to TYPO3 framework merger Andreas Fernandez who fixed the issue.
