|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: ht://Dig: Cross-site scripting vulnerability (GLSA 200502-16)
Date: February 13, 2005
ht://Dig is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.
ht://Dig is an HTTP/HTML indexing and searching system.
Vulnerable: < 3.1.6-r7
Unaffected: >= 3.1.6-r7
Architectures: All supported architectures
Michael Krax discovered that ht://Dig fails to validate the 'config' parameter before displaying an error message containing the parameter. This flaw could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.
By sending a carefully crafted message, an attacker can inject and execute script code in the victim's browser window. This allows to modify the behaviour of ht://Dig, and/or leak session information such as cookies to the attacker.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ht://Dig users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-misc/htdig-3.1.6-r7"
