Technical Details & Description:
Two persistent input validation web vulnerabilities has been discovered in the official Ebay Magento Web-Application (CMS & API).
A persistent vulnerability allows remote attackers to inject malicious script codes on the application-side of the affected web-application.

The vulnerability is located in the real `name change` (`Namensänderung`) formular. The input validation of the vulnerable `first- & lastname` does 
not encode scipt codes. Remote attackers are able to jungle over the main website to the real name change module. In the real name change module the 
change the registration name with an payload. The scipt code executes in both scenarios but only in case without doublequotes it will be changed 
(written) in the database. The execution occurs directly in the formular and in the top user name context location. The attack vector is persistent 
and the request method to inject is POST. After the save of the payload it is possible to attack platform users with the manipulated profile values. 

The security risk of the application-side web vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 3.9. 
Exploitation of the persistent web vulnerability requires a low privileged web-application user account and low user interaction. Successful exploitation 
results in session hijacking, persistent phishings attacks, persistent external redirect and malware loads or persistent manipulation of affected or 
connected module context.

Reference(s):  (Click Change original Registration Account "Name") (Login as the regular user account) (Exchange the user values with the name with a persistent script code payload) (persistent execution with save in the frontend & executable script code in backend too!)

Solution - Fix & Patch:
The vulnerability needs to be patched in 3 different steps.

1. The input field of the original registration user name change module needs to be restricted on special characters or script codes
2. In the second step the input of the context itself needs to be encoded or secure parsed to prevent further execution of malicious injected script codes as original user name value.
3. The optional third step is to encode already injected strings as original names in the database to prevent executions after the module has been successful updated.

Security Risk:
The security risk of the application-side input validation web vulnerability in the ebay original name change module is estimated as medium.
