Description Matt Fleming (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-25 22:42:55 UTC
Aria-Security Team has discovered a vulnerability in Kronolith, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

Input passed to the "url" parameter in addevent.php is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
Comment 1 Matt Fleming (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-25 22:51:32 UTC
Should be grouped with bug #212635 and bug #213493 for glsa.
Comment 2 Matt Fleming (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-25 23:24:19 UTC
I'm not sure whether this has been patched upstream yet, so I'm setting the whiteboard appropriately. Based on comments from rbu@ we might not want to group this with the other bugs for a glsa because this bug is xss only.
Comment 3 Matt Fleming (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-04-27 19:08:30 UTC
This issue has been fixed in 2.1.8 of kronolith. A CVE id has been requested. Setting herd and whiteboard.

cc'ing vapier as primary maintainer. Do you know whether other horde packages carry a kronolith copy?

Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-05-04 10:57:46 UTC
the only packages that would bundle any horde sub-packages would be horde-webmail or horde-groupware
