      Description

      The calendar component provided in tapestry 5.1.0.5 could be used to allow code injection by malicious web users into any page that uses datefield .

      To reproduce the vulnerability, put js code like <script>alert("T5 is great"); </script> in any datefield and click on the related calendar bitma

      After quick search in the DateField.js, it seems like the field value is not escaping

      escaping with a change like var value = escape($F(this.field)); the field value seems solve this vulnerability.
