Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attacks are a type of injection, in which malicious scripts are injected into otherwise benign and trusted web sites. XSS attacks occur when an attacker uses a web application to send malicious code, generally in the form of a browser side script, to a different end user. Flaws that allow these attacks to succeed are quite widespread and occur anywhere a web application uses input from a user within the output it generates without validating or encoding it. Reflected XSS occurs when user input is immediately returned by a web application in an error message, search result, or any other response that includes some or all of the input provided by the user as part of the request

"open-tab" field does not validate <script> tags and does not perform output encoding.

landing-pages/classes/class.settings.php:

177: $active_tab = $_REQUEST['open-tab'];

[...]

204: echo echo "<form action='edit.php?post_type=landing-page&page=lp_global_settings' method='POST'> <input type='hidden' name='nature' value='lp-global-settings-save'> <input type='hidden' name='open-tab' id='id-open-tab' value='{$active_tab}'>";
