Description Michael Harrison 2012-05-19 08:06:58 UTC
Input passed via the "author" and "authorurl" parameters to meta directives when creating or editing a page is not properly sanitised before being used.

This can be exploited to insert arbitrary HTML and script code, which will be executed in a user's browser session in context of an affected site when the malicious data is being viewed.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 3.20120516.

Update to version 3.20120516.
