Description Michael Harrison 2011-12-22 19:53:32 UTC
Input passed via the "$host" variable within the setup is not properly sanitised before being used. This can be exploited to insert HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site if malicious data is viewed.

NOTE: Successful exploitation requires that installation best-practices have not been followed and the config directory is left writable.

The vulnerability is reported in versions 3.4.x prior to 3.4.9.

Upgrade to version 3.4.9 or later.
