TITLE:
ViewVC Regular Expression Search Cross-Site Scripting Vulnerability

SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
SA38918

VERIFY ADVISORY:
http://secunia.com/advisories/38918/

DESCRIPTION:
Secunia Research has discovered a vulnerability in ViewVC, which can
be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.

Input passed to the regular expression search functionality is not
properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be
exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's
browser session in context of an affected site.

Successful exploitation requires that the regular expression search
functionality is enabled (disabled by default).

The vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.1.4. Other versions may
also be affected.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.0.11 and 1.1.5.
