Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA125] DSA-125-1 analog

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-125-1 analog

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Yuji Takahashi discovered a bug in analog which permits a cross-site
scripting type attack. It is easy for a possible hacker to insert arbitrary
strings into any web server logfile. If these strings are then
analysed by analog, they can appear in the report. By this means an
attacker can introduce arbitrary Javascript code, for example, into an
analog report produced by someone else and read by a third person.
Analog already attempted to encode unsafe characters to avoid this
type of attack, but the conversion was incomplete.
This problem has been fixed in the upstream version 5.22 of analog.
Unfortunately patching the old version of analog in the stable
distribution of Debian instead is a very large job that defeats us.
We recommend that you upgrade your analog package immediately.
