Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related
updates.

Description :

Typo Security Team reports :

Failing to properly encode the output, the default TYPO3 Exception
Handler is susceptible to Cross-Site Scripting. We are not aware of a
possibility to exploit this vulnerability without third party
extensions being installed that put user input in exception messages.
However, it has come to our attention that extensions using the
extbase MVC framework can be used to exploit this vulnerability if
these extensions accept objects in controller actions.
