Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Trac: Cross-site scripting vulnerability (GLSA 200601-12)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: January 26, 2006
Bug(s): #118302
ID: 200601-12

Synopsis

Trac is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting attack that could allow arbitrary JavaScript code execution.

Background

Trac is a minimalistic web-based project management, wiki and bug tracking system including a Subversion interface.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/trac
Vulnerable: < 0.9.3
Unaffected: >= 0.9.3
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Christophe Truc discovered that Trac fails to properly sanitize input passed in the URL.

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit this to inject and execute malicious script code or to steal cookie-based authentication credentials, potentially compromising the victim's browser.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Trac users should upgrade to the latest available version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/trac-0.9.3"
Note: Users with the vhosts USE flag set should manually use webapp-config to finalize the update.
