Resolution ========== Upgrade to 0.4.5-1. # pacman -Syu "mdbook>=0.4.5-1" The problem has been fixed upstream in version 0.4.5. Workaround ========== None. Description =========== The search feature of mdBook (introduced in version 0.1.4) was affected by a cross site scripting vulnerability that allowed an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript code on an user's browser by tricking the user into typing a malicious search query, or tricking the user into clicking a link to the search page with the malicious search query prefilled. mdBook 0.4.5 fixes the vulnerability by properly escaping the search query.
