Vulnerability Details:
The smartphone name isnat filtered properly and is reflected unfiltered to
the app. This results in an cross site scritping, if you just connect to the Bose box via the app.

Malicious javascript code can be executed within a users context. This can lead to session hijacking or triggering unwanted actions via the interface.

Steps to reproduce:
Just name your iOS device in a<script>alert(1)</script>a and pair your box with your smartphone via the app. Many popups will occur.

You should filter the input (the name of connected device)

An issue was discovered in the Bose Soundtouch app 18.1.4 for iOS.
There is no frontend input validation of the device name. A malicious
device name can execute JavaScript on the
registered Bose User Account if a speaker has been connected to the app.
