[GLSA-200502-16] ht://Dig: Cross-site scripting vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
ht://Dig: Cross-site scripting vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200502-16
(ht://Dig: Cross-site scripting vulnerability)


Michael Krax discovered that ht://Dig fails to validate the
'config' parameter before displaying an error message containing the
parameter. This flaw could permit a possible hacker to conduct cross-site
scripting attacks.

Impact

By sending a carefully crafted message, a possible hacker can inject and
execute script code in the victim's browser window. This permits to
modify the behaviour of ht://Dig, and/or leak session information such
as cookies to the attacker.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
