Synopsis
========

Zwiki is vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks.

Background
==========

Zwiki is a Zope wiki-clone for easy-to-edit collaborative websites.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package         /   Vulnerable   /                     Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  net-zope/zwiki      < 0.36.2-r1                      >= 0.36.2-r1

Description
===========

Due to improper input validation, Zwiki can be exploited to perform
cross-site scripting attacks.

Impact
======

By enticing a user to read a specially-crafted wiki entry, an attacker
can execute arbitrary script code running in the context of the
victim's browser.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Zwiki users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-zope/zwiki-0.36.2-r1"
