Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Horde Application Framework: XSS vulnerability (GLSA 200511-20)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 22, 2005
Bug(s): #112491
ID: 200511-20

Synopsis

The Horde Application Framework is vulnerable to a cross-site scripting vulnerability which could lead to the compromise of the victim's browser content.

Background

The Horde Application Framework is a general-purpose web application framework written in PHP, providing classes for handling preferences, compression, browser detection, connection tracking, MIME, and more.

Affected Packages

Package: www-apps/horde
Vulnerable: < 2.2.9
Unaffected: >= 2.2.9
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The Horde Team reported a potential XSS vulnerability. Horde fails to properly escape error messages which may lead to displaying unsanitized error messages via Notification_Listener::getMessage()

Impact

By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted e-mail or using a manipulated URL, an attacker can execute arbitrary scripts running in the context of the victim's browser. This could lead to a compromise of the user's browser content.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Horde Application Framework users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/horde-2.2.9"
