[SECURITY] [DLA 3652-1] ruby-sanitize security update

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian LTS Advisory DLA-3652-1 Chris Lamb
November 14, 2023
- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ruby-sanitize
Version : 4.6.6-2.1~deb10u2
CVE ID : CVE-2023-36823
Debian Bug : 1041430

It was discovered that there was a potential cross-site scripting
(XSS) in ruby-sanitize, a whitelist-based HTML sanitizer.

Using carefully crafted input, an attacker may have be able to sneak
arbitrary HTML and CSS through Sanitize when configured to use the
built-in "relaxed" config or when using a custom config that allowed
"style" elements and one or more CSS "at"-rules. This could have
resulted in cross-site scripting (XSS) or other undesired behavior
if the malicious HTML and CSS were then rendered in a browser.

For Debian 10 buster, this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your ruby-sanitize packages.
