[ASA-201910-4] ruby-rdoc: cross-site scripting
Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201910-4 ========================================= Severity: Medium Date : 2019-10-02 CVE-ID : CVE-2012-6708 CVE-2015-9251 Package : ruby-rdoc Type : cross-site scripting Remote : Yes Link : Summary ======= The package ruby-rdoc before version 6.1.2-1 is vulnerable to cross- site scripting. Resolution ========== Upgrade to 6.1.2-1. # pacman -Syu "ruby-rdoc>=6.1.2-1" The problems have been fixed upstream in version 6.1.2. Workaround ========== None. Description =========== - CVE-2012-6708 (cross-site scripting) jQuery before 1.9.0 is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks. The jQuery(strInput) function does not differentiate selectors from HTML in a reliable fashion. In vulnerable versions, jQuery determined whether the input was HTML by looking for the '<' character anywhere in the string, giving attackers more flexibility when attempting to construct a malicious payload. In fixed versions, jQuery only deems the input to be HTML if it explicitly starts with the '<' character, limiting exploitability only to attackers who can control the beginning of a string, which is far less common. - CVE-2015-9251 (cross-site scripting) jQuery before 3.0.0 is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks when a cross-domain Ajax request is performed without the dataType option, causing text/javascript responses to be executed. Impact ====== An attacker is able to perform cross-side scripting attacks by tricking users to generate documentation with a vulnerable RDoc version. RDoc is a static documentation generation tool, patching the tool itself is insufficient to mitigate these vulnerabilities. Documentations generated with previous versions have to be re-generated with newer RDoc. References ==========
