This advisory is misleading. This is not a true threat since this page is only accessible AFTER you login. So it is not a publicly viewable page, only the admin can view it. The file has also been modified to add more security. Please remove this. Thank you.

Please note that the cross-site scripting vulnerability is confirmed in version 1.2.2 and also in the updated package of version 1.2.2. If a logged-in administrative user visits a malicious web site or follows a specially crafted link, arbitrary script code controlled by the attacker can be executed in the context of the user's browser session.

We've also noticed that a directory traversal vulnerability has been fixed in an updated package of version 1.2.2 that allows logged-in users to disclose the contents of local files. We've, therefore, updated our advisory to reflect this new information.
