ID: 200409-23

Synopsis

Background

SnipSnap is a user friendly content management system with features such as wiki and weblog.

Affected Packages

Description

SnipSnap contains various HTTP response splitting vulnerabilities that could potentially compromise the sites data. Some of these attacks include web cache poisoning, cross-user defacement, hijacking pages with sensitive user information, and cross-site scripting.
