Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-01-05 11:53:04 UTC
Originally, Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2010-1104 to the following vulnerability:

Cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability in Zope 2.8.x before 2.8.12, 2.9.x before 2.9.12, 2.10.x before 2.10.11, 2.11.x before 2.11.6, and 2.12.x before 2.12.3 allows remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via vectors related to error messages.

Later the applied upstream patch was found to be incomplete. The CVE identifier of CVE-2011-4924 has been assigned to this incomplete fix with the issue description as follows:

A cross site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Zope2 and Zope3 performed error messages sanitization. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into Zope2, into visiting a specially-crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in the context of user's Zope2 session. If a remote attacker could trick a user, who was logged into Zope3, into examining error entries for particular Zope3 instance, it would lead to arbitrary web script execution in the context of user's Zope3 session.

This issue does NOT affect the version of the conga package as shipped with
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 as it did not include the incomplete patch for
CVE-2010-1104 issue.
