Horde Application Framework login.php cross-site scripting
|horde-login-xss (33013)||Medium Risk|
The Horde Application Framework is vulnerable to cross-site scripting, if language selection boxes are enabled, caused by improper validation of user-supplied input by the login.php script. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability using the new_lang parameter in a specially-crafted URL to execute script in a victim's Web browser within the security context of the hosting Web site, once the URL is clicked. An attacker could use this vulnerability to steal the victim's cookie-based authentication credentials.
Upgrade to the latest version of the Horde Application Framework (3.1.4 or later), available from the Horde Application Framework Web site. See References.
For other distributions:
Apply the appropriate update for your system. See References.
