Summary
Updated builds that resolve a Cross Site Scripting vulnerability are available

Security Rating
This vulnerability is rated as trivial by the cPanel Security Team

Description
The /frontend/x/htaccess/changepro.html is used by the cPanel X theme to display status of applying password protection to web-accessible directories. The “resname” query variable is not properly sanitized allowing an attacker to inject malicious HTML and Javascript. As only authenticated users are vulnerable to this attack the threat is trivial.
