Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-06-15 10:09:55 EDT
It was found that application for listing of system groups in Red Hat Network
Satellite Server and Spacewalk services did not properly HTML escape
the content of QueryString. A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct
XSS attacks, potentially leading into attacker's ability to steal
the users' session cookie.


Red Hat would like to thank Daniel Karanja Muturi for reporting this issue.

I don't quite understand -- the problem (and the fix) is not in spacewalk-backend package.
Comment 14 Jan Pazdziora 2011-09-16 05:32:20 EDT
Fixed in Spacewalk master, commit 2d9c34e7b682b375ea32595f0dd38b61f424a24f, tagged as spacewalk-java-1.6.46-1.
Comment 15 Vincent Danen 2011-09-16 13:40:13 EDT
Sorry, thanks for the Jan.  When initially filing this, I suspect some random spacewalk component was selected for the purpose of tracking bugs.  Thank you for clearing it up and resolving that invalid tracker.
