Debian DLA-1342-1 : ldap-account-manager security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 108903

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Michal Kedzior found two vulnerabilities in LDAP Account Manager, a web front-end for LDAP directories.

CVE-2018-8763

The found Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability might allow an attacker to execute JavaScript code in the browser of the victim or to redirect her to a malicious website if the victim clicks on a specially crafted link.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 3.7-2+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ldap-account-manager packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
