|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: SnipSnap: HTTP response splitting (GLSA 200409-23)
Date: September 17, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
SnipSnap is vulnerable to HTTP response splitting attacks such as web cache poisoning, cross-user defacement, and cross-site scripting.
SnipSnap is a user friendly content management system with features such as wiki and weblog.
Vulnerable: < 1.0_beta1
Unaffected: >= 1.0_beta1
Architectures: All supported architectures
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. This vulnerability is due to the lack of illegal input checking in the software.
A malicious user could inject and execute arbitrary script code, potentially compromising the victim's data or browser.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All SnipSnap users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge sync
# emerge -pv ">=dev-java/snipsnap-bin-1.0_beta1"
# emerge ">=dev-java/snipsnap-bin-1.0beta1"
