ZF2010-02: Potential XSS vector in Zend_Dojo_View_Helper_Editor
Zend_Dojo_View_Helper_Editor was incorrectly decorating a TEXTAREA
instead of a DIV. The Dojo team has reported that this has security
implications as the rich text editor they use is unable to escape
content for a TEXTAREA.
If you use
Zend_Dojo_View_Helper_Editor, it is strongly
recommended that you upgrade to either the latest available
Zend Framework release, or one of the following releases, immediately:
The Zend Framework team thanks the following for working with us to help protect its users:
- Pádraic Brady, who made the initial report and who worked with our team to ensure that the appropriate actions were taken
- Peter Petrison and Mark Corti, for raising related issues in the ZF issue tracker
