Michal Kedzior found two vulnerabilities in LDAP Account Manager, a web front-end for LDAP directories.


The found Reflected Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability might allow an attacker to execute JavaScript code in the browser of the victim or to redirect her to a malicious website if the victim clicks on a specially crafted link.


The application leaks the CSRF token in the URL, which can be use by an attacker to perform a Cross-Site Request Forgery attack, in which a victim logged in LDAP Account Manager might performed unwanted actions in the front-end by clicking on a link crafted by the attacker.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 4.7.1-1+deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 5.5-1+deb9u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ldap-account-manager packages.
