Description

Vulnerability Description

ReciPants contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not validate user-supplied input in various ID parameters (e. g. user id, recipe id, category id). This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity. No further details have been provided.

Solution Description

Upgrade to version 1.2 or higher, as it has been reported to fix this vulnerability. An upgrade is required as there are no known workarounds.
