CVE-2024-23642 is a stored cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in GeoServer versions prior to 2.23.4 and 2.24.1. GeoServer is an open source software server used for sharing and editing geospatial data. This vulnerability allows an authenticated administrator with workspace-level privileges to store a JavaScript payload in the GeoServer catalog, which will execute in the context of another user's browser when viewed in the WMS GetMap SVG Output Format with the Simple SVG renderer enabled. The WMS SVG Format is accessible to all users by default, but data and service security measures may limit users' ability to trigger the XSS. The issue has been fixed in versions 2.23.4 and 2.24.1 of GeoServer.
