Comment 3 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-21 09:36:42 UTC
A HTTP injection flaw was found in the way Plone, a user friendly and powerful content management system, performed sanitization of HTTP cookie values provided within certain URL requests. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted URL that, then visited by an authenticated Plone user would lead to arbitrary HTML or web script execution in the context of the Plone user's session.

A different vulnerability than CVE-2012-5486.
