Description

An issue was discovered in SiteLinksView.php in Wikibase in MediaWiki through 1.39.3. There is XSS via a crafted badge title attribute. This is also related to lack of escaping in wbTemplate (from resources/wikibase/templates.js) for quotes (which can be in a title attribute).

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
