Title: Zwiki: XSS vulnerability (GLSA 200412-23)
Severity: low
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 21, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
Bug(s): #72315
ID: 200412-23

Synopsis

Zwiki is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Background

Zwiki is a Zope wiki-clone for easy-to-edit collaborative websites.

Affected Packages

Package: net-zope/zwiki
Vulnerable: < 0.36.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 0.36.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Due to improper input validation, Zwiki can be exploited to perform cross-site scripting attacks.

Impact

By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted wiki entry, an attacker can execute arbitrary script code running in the context of the victim's browser.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Zwiki users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-zope/zwiki-0.36.2-r1"
