Description:

The lucene search admin tool (Admin only) allows a user to construct and execute a query to run against dotCMS content. The admin tool does not sanitize the query and echo's it back to the user which allows for XSS javascript execution.

Workaround:

Prevent access to the lucene search admin tool except for authorized personnel.
