XSS vulnerability in OFBiz forms and screens especially in display-entity component

    Details

      Description

      In Ofbiz form need to escape characters from description column in a display-entity tag to avoid XSS attacks.

      <display-entity entity-name="Table" description="${description}" >

      I tried to use bsh, as following:

      <display-entity entity-name="Table" description="${bsh: org.apache.commons.lang.StringEscapeUtils.escapeHtml(&quot;${description}&quot;)}">

      But I get this error:

      Error rendering screen [component://my/widget/CommonScreens.xml#GlobalDecorator]: java.lang.IllegalStateException: This object has been flagged as immutable (unchangeable), probably because it came from an Entity Engine cache. Cannot set a value in an immutable entity object. 
      (This object has been flagged as immutable (unchangeable), probably because it came from an Entity Engine cache. Cannot set a value in an immutable entity object.)
