Debian DSA-953-1 : flyspray - missing input sanitising

medium Nessus Plugin ID 22819


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


Several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities have been discovered in flyspray, a lightweight bug tracking system, which allows attackers to insert arbitrary script code into the index page.


Upgrade the flyspray package.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain flyspray.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in version 0.9.7-2.1.
