Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Security Focus reports :

PyBlosxom is prone to multiple XML-injection vulnerabilities because
the application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before
using it in dynamically generated content.

Attacker-supplied XML and script code would run in the context of the
affected browser, potentially allowing the attacker to steal
cookie-based authentication credentials or to control how the site is
rendered to the user. Other attacks are also possible.
