Assigned CVE-ID numbers for vulnerabilities #1-6, added public exploit and updated description for vulnerability #4

1) Stored cross-site scripting

Severity: Low

CVSSv3: 6.3 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:C/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2019-17674

CWE-ID: CWE-79 - Improper Neutralization of Input During Web Page Generation ('Cross-site Scripting')

Description

The disclosed vulnerability allows a remote attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

The vulnerability exists due to insufficient sanitization of user-supplied data in Customizer. A remote attacker can inject and execute arbitrary HTML and script code in user's browser in context of vulnerable website.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote attacker to steal potentially sensitive information, change appearance of the web page, perform phishing and drive-by-download attacks.

Mitigation

Install updates from vendor's website.
