Package        : ldap-account-manager
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-8763 CVE-2018-8764

Michal Kedzior found two vulnerabilities in LDAP Account Manager, a web
front-end for LDAP directories.

CVE-2018-8763

    The found Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability might
    allow an attacker to execute JavaScript code in the browser of the
    victim or to redirect her to a malicious website if the victim clicks
    on a specially crafted link.

CVE-2018-8764

    The application leaks the CSRF token in the URL, which can be use by
    an attacker to perform a Cross-Site Request Forgery attack, in which
    a victim logged in LDAP Account Manager might performed unwanted
    actions in the front-end by clicking on a link crafted by the
    attacker.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed
in version 4.7.1-1+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 5.5-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ldap-account-manager packages.
