Overview

quill is a modern rich text editor built for compatibility and extensibility.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Reverse Tabnabbing due to use of target='_blank' in anchor tags, allowing attackers to access window.opener for the original page when opening links. This is commonly used for phishing attacks.

Remediation

Upgrade quill to version 1.3.7 or higher.
