Details:
========
A persistent script code injection vulnerability is detected on the WhiteHouse Gov website. The vulnerability allows remote
attackers to implement/inject own malicious script code (persistent) on a web service main module of the website. The successful
exploitation of the vulnerability results in hijacking of user-,admin- or -backend sessions, manipulation of profile content,
redirect to external malicious targets(websites), defacement & can lead to malware infiltration via petition.
