Security Advisory

1) Privilege escalation

Severity: Medium

CVSSv3: 4.7 [CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N/E:U/RL:O/RC:C] [PCI]

CVE-ID: CVE-2015-0055

CWE-ID: CWE-264 - Permissions, Privileges, and Access Controls

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to gain elevated privileges on the target system.

The vulnerability exists due to improper validation of permissions. A remote attacker can create a specially crafted Web site, trick the victim into visiting it and run scripts with elevated privileges.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability results in privilege escalation on the vulnerable system.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
