CouchDB < 1.0.2 Cross Site Scripting Issue

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5755


The remote database server is vulnerable to a cross-site attack.


The remote host is running CouchDB, a document-oriented database.

Versions of CouchDB earlier than 1.0.2 are potentially affected by a cross-site scripting vulnerability. The application fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input before it is used in the Futon administrative interface. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary script code in the security context of CouchDB's admin interface.


Upgrade to CouchDB 1.0.2 or later.
