OpenCATS is an open-source platform that is designed for small and medium enterprises to streamline their recruitment processes. The platform's core functionality provides recruitment management support for the overall hiring process, from requisition to hiring. It's built to help businesses manage the entire recruitment cycle with ease, from posting job openings to tracking applicants’ progress throughout the hiring process.

However, the platform has recently been found to contain a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability, designated as CVE-2022-43015. The vulnerability can be exploited if an attacker sent a specially crafted URL to an OpenCATS user that would execute unauthorized JavaScript code in the victim's browser. This XSS vulnerability can lead to the leakage of confidential information, defacement of websites, or manipulation of website content in the context of the victim.

An attacker can look to exploit the vulnerability to steal sensitive data, modify content, or execute malicious scripts. Beyond those usual effects, the vulnerability can lead to a slew of other cybersecurity-related issues, including the unauthorized use of admin privileges to alter job postings or candidate details in the recruitment process, to various forms of data theft and the installation of malicious code on vulnerable systems that could grant attackers complete control over them.
