CandidATS version 3.0.0 allows an external attacker to steal the cookie of arbitrary users. This is possible because the application does not correctly validate the files uploaded by the user.
The Stored XSS present in CandidATS 3.0.0 allows an unauthenticated remote attacker to perform an Account Takeover. To trigger this vulnerability, we will need to force a user to upload a malicious file and wait for them to view the file.
In this attack we will obtain the administrator user account, through a malicious link.
