=====[ Detailed description ]==============================================

  Ghost version 0.11.3 is vulnerable to persistent cross-site scripting
  (XSS) because it fails to securely handle user data, thus making it
  possible for an attacker to supply crafted input in order to harm third
  party users.
  The affected point is the website input field located within the "Your
  profile" page.  In order to reproduce the vulnerability, access the URL
  http(s)://{{ blog URL }}/ghost/team/{{ user slug }}/ and edit the user
  website inserting the following payload:

  {{ valid URL }}/</script><script>alert(1)</script>

  Save changes and visit any post created by this author or the author's
  page at http(s)://{{ blog URL}}/author/{{ user slug }}/.

  It is worth noting that the issue may affect users regardless of
  privilege levels, since the malicious page can be browsed by an admin,
  the owner or a regular visitor.
