  <title>ht://Dig: Cross-site scripting vulnerability</title>

    <p>
    ht://Dig is an HTTP/HTML indexing and searching system.

  <description>
    <p>
    Michael Krax discovered that ht://Dig fails to validate the
    'config' parameter before displaying an error message containing the
    parameter. This flaw could allow an attacker to conduct cross-site
    scripting attacks.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="low">
    <p>
    By sending a carefully crafted message, an attacker can inject and
    execute script code in the victim's browser window. This allows to
    modify the behaviour of ht://Dig, and/or leak session information such
    as cookies to the attacker.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There is no known workaround at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All ht://Dig users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=www-misc/htdig-3.1.6-r7"</code>
  </resolution>
