Cross-site Scripting in Discourse

DiscourseにおけるXSS (クロスサイトスクリプティング)




Discourse is an open source platform for community discussion. Due to the improper sanitization of SVG files, an attacker can execute arbitrary JavaScript on the users’ browsers by uploading a crafted SVG file. This issue is patched in the latest stable and tests-passed versions of Discourse. Users are advised to upgrade. For users unable to upgrade there are two possible workarounds: enable CDN handing of uploads (and ensure the CDN sanitizes SVG files) or disable SVG file uploads by ensuring that the authorized extensions site setting does not include svg (or reset that setting to the default, by default Discourse doesn't enable SVG uploads by users).
