    Summary:

    Software Description:

    Details:
    
    Chris Chapman discovered cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities
    in Horizon via the Volumes and Network Topology pages. An authenticated
    attacker could exploit these to conduct stored cross-site scripting (XSS)

    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
