FreeBSD : ikiwiki -- javascript insertion via uris (739329c8-d8f0-11dc-ac2f-0016d325a0ed)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31031


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


The ikiwiki development team reports :

The htmlscrubber did not block JavaScript in uris. This was fixed by adding a whitelist of valid uri types, which does not include JavaScript. Some urls specifyable by the meta plugin could also theoretically have been used to inject JavaScript; this was also blocked.


Update the affected package.
