Description Tomas Hoger 2008-07-09 08:59:15 EDT
It was discovered that multiple CGI scripts used by Red Hat / Fedora Directory
Server did not properly sanitize %-escaped inputs, resulting in a possibility to
conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

Issue was caused by a flow in an adminutil library that contain common
functionality used by multiple CGI scripts, such as affected GET / POST argument
parsing.

Issue is know to affect some Administration Express scripts and Directory Server
Gateway (DSGW) scripts.

Affected version:
Red Hat Directory Server 7.1
Red Hat Directory Server 8 (flaw limited to Administration Express issues, as
DSGW component is not shipped)
Fedora Directory Server
