Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84325


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


Kyle Kelley reports :

Summary: JSON error responses from the IPython notebook REST API contained URL parameters and were incorrectly reported as text/html instead of application/json. The error messages included some of these URL params, resulting in a cross site scripting attack. This affects users on Mozilla Firefox but not Chromium/Google Chrome.

API paths with issues :

- /api/contents (3.0-3.1)

- /api/notebooks (2.0-2.4, 3.0-3.1)


Update the affected package.
