CVE-2023-51445 is a stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in GeoServer, an open source software server for sharing and editing geospatial data. The vulnerability affects versions prior to 2.23.3 and 2.24.0. An authenticated administrator with workspace-level privileges can store a JavaScript payload in uploaded style/legend resources, which will execute in the context of another administrator's browser when viewed in the REST Resources API. Access to the REST Resources API is limited to full administrators by default, but granting non-administrators access should be carefully considered as it may expose sensitive information. The issue has been patched in versions 2.23.3 and 2.24.0. The vulnerability has a risk score of 25 and a base severity of MEDIUM according to the CVSS:3.1 vector string, indicating a potential threat to organizations using affected versions of GeoServer if not remediated promptly.
