Vulnerability Scan Summary
Horde Application Framework: XSS vulnerability
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
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()
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Horde Application Framework users should upgrade to the latest
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/horde-2.2.9"
Threat Level: Low
