Title: –  XSS at Album Creation 


A malicious file upload vulnerability can lead to Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) when an attacker uploads a file containing malicious scripts. The uploaded file is typically processed by the application, and if proper validation and security controls are lacking, the script within the file can execute in the context of other users, compromising their data and sessions.
