Severity: Medium Date : 2020-12-05 CVE-ID : CVE-2020-27783 Package : python-lxml Type : cross-site scripting Remote : Yes Link : https://security.archlinux.org/AVG-1319
The package python-lxml before version 4.6.2-1 is vulnerable to cross- site scripting.
Upgrade to 4.6.2-1.
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 4.6.2.
A cross-site scripting vulnerability was discovered in python-lxml's clean module before version 4.6.2. The module's parser didn't properly imitate browsers, which caused different behaviors between the sanitizer and the user's page. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to run arbitrary HTML/JS code.
