[GLSA-200511-20] Horde Application Framework: XSS vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Horde Application Framework: XSS vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-20
(Horde Application Framework: XSS vulnerability)


The Horde Team reported a potential XSS vulnerability. Horde fails
to properly escape error messages which may lead to displaying
unsanitized error messages via Notification_Listener::getMessage()

Impact

By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted e-mail or using a
manipulated URL, a possible hacker can execute arbitrary scripts running in
the context of the victim's browser. This could lead to a compromise of
the user's browser content.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
