Anonymous attacker can use a special HTTP request to hijack session data of administrators or users of a web resource.
An attacker can use a Cross-site scripting vulnerability to inject a malicious script into a web page. Reflected XSS feature is the necessity of tricking a user from attackers’ side – they must make user follow a specially-crafted link.
Speaking about a stored XSS, a malicious script is injected and permanently stored in a web page body, this way the user is attacked without performing any actions.
Malicious script can access all cookies, session tokens, and other critical information stored by a browser and used for interaction with the site. An attacker can gain access to user’s session and learn business-critical information, in some cases it is possible to get control over this information. Also, XSS can be used for unauthorized modifying of displayed site content.
