Description Vincent Danen 2014-06-21 16:16:43 UTC
As noted in this report to oss-security [1], a flaw exists in the apt-cacher-ng server, and an inside attacker (on the LAN with knowledge of the server's address), could trick a user into visiting, or redirect them to, a manipulated URL that would cause the cross-site scripting attack.

A proposed fix has been made [2].
