Passing an invalid RRD file to rrd_fetch_json.php via the left= parameter in POST prints the supplied name to the user without encoding
Passing an invalid RRD file to rrd_fetch_json.php via the left= parameter in POST prints the supplied name without encoding, leading to a potential XSS vector.
Two potential issues here:
1. rrd_fetch_json.php needs to check if a file exists and handle that case better, either skipping actions or returning a generic error without supplying the full output
2. status_monitoring.php needs to not print the error messages exactly as they are sent from rrd_fetch_json.php so that HTML or other scripts cannot be passed back via error messages.
To me, I have a fix.
