Some vulnerabilities have been reported in SemanticScuttle, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and cross-site request forgery attacks.
1) Certain input is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
2) The application allows users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. change a user's password when a logged-in user visits a malicious web site.
The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 0.90. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 0.90.
