Description Thomas Stein 2018-02-19 13:58:54 UTC
Hi Devs.
2.1.26 is a security update fixing an XSS.

   - An XSS vulnerability in the user options CGI could allow a crafted URL
      to execute arbitrary javascript in a user's browser. A related issue
      could expose information on a user's options page without requiring
      login. These are fixed. Thanks to Calum Hutton for the report.
      CVE-2018-5950 (LP: #1747209)

Reproducible: Always
