    Description:
    A vulnerability has been reported in cPanel, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

    Input passed to the "fileop" parameter in frontend/x3/files/fileop.html is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.

    The vulnerability is reported in cPanel version 11.24.7 and all prior 11.x versions.

    Re:

    Please let us know whether it will be possible to resolve the issue without upgrading the cPanel version.

    We can perform the upgrade on a separate server and just copy the necessarily files.

    We have tried to copy the files from the /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend/THEME/ folder from a upgraded cPanel installation, but this has not resolved the issue.

    We need to know which are the files where "fileop" is sanitized.
