Description Kurt Seifried 2011-12-19 05:17:18 UTC
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=652587

The JS escaping in libhtml-template-pro-perl misses to escape "<" and
">" which allows XSS.  This was fixed in the last upstream release (0.9507).

An example script that triggers the bug is attached.  With 0.9507 it
outputs

&lt;evil&gt;

older versions generate

<evil>

instead.
