Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

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, an attacker 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.
