==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in SPIP.

Software Description:

It was discovered that SPIP incorrectly validated inputs. An authenticated
attacker could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2020-28984)

Charles Fol and Théo Gordyjan discovered that SPIP is vulnerable to Cross
Site Scripting (XSS). If a user were tricked into browsing a malicious SVG
file, an attacker could possibly exploit this issue to execute arbitrary
code. This issue was only fixed in Ubuntu 21.10. (CVE-2021-44118,
CVE-2021-44120, CVE-2021-44122, CVE-2021-44123)

It was discovered that SPIP incorrectly handled certain forms. A remote
authenticated editor could possibly use this issue to execute arbitrary code,
and a remote unauthenticated attacker could possibly use this issue to obtain
sensitive information. (CVE-2022-26846, CVE-2022-26847)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 21.10:
