Red Hat: namazu buffer overflow vulnerability

Author: JT Smith

Posted on LinuxSecurity.com: Updated namazu packages are available for Red Hat Linux 7.0J. These
packages fix cross-site scripting vulnerabilities. It also fixes a possible
buffer overflow.
Namazu is a full-text search engine. Namazu 2.0.9 and earlier may
inadvertently include malicious HTML tags or scripts in a dynamically
generated page, based on unvalidated input from untrustworthy sources.
Also, a buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the buffer size of an
environment variable.
