CouchDB < 1.0.2 Cross Site Scripting Issue
Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5755
SynopsisThe remote database server is vulnerable to a cross-site attack.
DescriptionThe 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.
SolutionUpgrade to CouchDB 1.0.2 or later.
