Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,
Roundup upstream has released new upstream 1.4.20 version,
correcting multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws (and
couple of other security related issues):
More from  (plus relevant tickets inlined too, where
possible to find out):
[A] * issue2550729: Fix password history display for anydbm backend,
thanks to Ralf Hemmecke for reporting. (Ralf)
[B] * issue2550684 Fix XSS vulnerability when username contains HTML code,
thanks to Thomas Arendsen Hein for reporting and patch. (Ralf)
[C] * issue2550711 Fix XSS vulnerability in @action parameter,
thanks to "om" for reporting. (Ralf)
[D] * Fix wrong execute permissions on some files,
thanks to Cheer Xiao for the patch. (Ralf)
[E] * Fix another XSS with the "otk" parameter,
thanks to Jesse Ruderman for reporting. (Ralf)
[F] * Mark cookies HttpOnly and -- if https is used -- secure. Fixes issue2550689,
but is untested if this really works in browsers. Thanks to Joseph Myers for reporting. (Ralf)
[G] * Fix another XSS with the ok- and error message, see issue2550724. We solve this differently
from the proposals in the bug-report by not allowing any html-tags in ok/error messages
anymore. Thanks to David Benjamin for the bug-report and to Ezio Melotti for several proposed fixes. (Ralf)
Cc-ed Ralf Schlatterbeck on this post too to clarify, if issues [A] and [D]
would also have security implications / IOW if those would be security flaws too.
Ralf please clarify. Thank you, Jan.
Could you allocate CVE ids for these (once clarified)?
Thank you && Regards, Jan.
