Debian Security Advisory

DLA-1241-1 libkohana2-php -- LTS security update

Date Reported:
14 Jan 2018
Affected Packages:
libkohana2-php
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2016-10510.
More information:

David Sopas discovered that Kohana, a PHP framework, was vulnerable to a Cross-site scripting (XSS) attack that allowed remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML by bypassing the strip_image_tags protection mechanism in system/classes/Kohana/Security.php. This issue was resolved by permanently removing the strip_image_tags function. Users are advised to sanitize user input by using external libraries instead.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2.3.4-2+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libkohana2-php packages.
