DESCRIPTION:
Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Apache Continuum, which
can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting
and request forgery attacks.

1) Certain unspecified input 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.

2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP
requests without performing proper validity checks to verify the
requests. This can be exploited to e.g. change the administrator's
credentials when a logged-in administrator visits a specially crafted
web page.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.3.7.

SOLUTION:
Update to version 1.3.7.
