This is fixed in master branch at

@tsarsecurity, I am unable to mark this as fixed, since that requires hard-setting a publish date, which I am unable to safely predict. We plan to release OpenEMR 7.0.1 in about 1-3 weeks, which will include this fix. At that time (after release OpenEMR 7.0.1), we will then mark this issue as fixed (and publish at that time with a cve).

thanks for the report @tsarsecurity !
