It was found that if Cumin were asked to display a link name containing non-ASCII characters, the request would terminate with an error. If data containing non-ASCII characters were added to the database (such as via Cumin or Wallaby), requests to load said data would terminate and the requested page would not be displayed until an administrator cleans the database. (CVE-2012-2682)
It was found that Cumin did not set the HttpOnly flag on session cookies. This could allow a malicious script to access the session cookie. (CVE-2014-0174)
These issues were discovered by Stanislav Graf of Red Hat.
All users of cumin with Red Hat Enterprise MRG 2.5 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these issues.
