Hi,

 

Usually html injection can happen by either url or user input data. We need to check for the html tags and encode them to make sure they are consider as string instead of html tags.

 

Take a look at below link for additional details

Apply the latest hotfix and use the Adobe recommended security configs: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/experience-manager-64/administering/security/security-checkl...

 

Lastly, AEM 6.2 has been out of support for a long time and the best option will be to move to 6.5 Or AEM Cloud.

Hi jbrar, I understand AEM6.2 is out of support and we are planning to upgrade. But, as this is very important security, we need to prevent this. May I know how to resolve this?
