* A flaw was found in Kibana's logging functionality. If custom logging output was configured in Kibana, private user data could be written to the Kibana log files. A system attacker could use this data to hijack sessions of other users when using Kibana behind some form of authentication such as Shield.

* A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in Kibana. A remote attacker could use this flaw to inject arbitrary web script into pages served to other users.
