    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.
