Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-11-23 10:58:47 UTC
A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way Namazu, a full-text search engine, performed CGI parameters sanitization when processing HTTP cookies. If namazu was configured as a CGI script (WWW search engine), a remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted web page, which once processed by the engine could lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution or allow an adversary to discover the value of HTTP cookie.
