Description Vincent Danen 2013-07-22 20:01:03 UTC
The upstream releases notes for version 1.2.7 [1] indicate that if fixes several security-relevant bugs:

Version 1.2.7 (22 Jan 2013)
 - Security fix: Do not show the reason for a failed login (i.e. "no such user")
 - Security fix: Escape HTML characters in category name.
 - Security fix: Check all passed in fields (either via HTML form or via
   URL parameter) for certain malicious tags (script, embed, etc.) and
   generate fatal error if found.

Current versions of Fedora are shipping a vulnerable version and should be updated.
