    Tango discovered that ikiwiki, a wiki compiler, is not validating
    if the htmlscrubber plugin is enabled or not on a page when adding
    alternative stylesheets to pages.  This enables an attacker who is able
    to upload custom stylesheets to add malicious stylesheets as an alternate
    stylesheet, or replace the default stylesheet, and thus conduct
    cross-site scripting attacks.
