Ruby: Cross Site Scripting via RDoc

Synthesis of the vulnerability

When an HTML document was generated by Ruby RDoc, an attacker can trigger a Cross Site Scripting via the darkfish.js script.
Impacted products: openSUSE, RHEL, Unix (platform).
Severity: 2/4.
Creation date: 07/02/2013.
Identifiers: BID-57785, CVE-2013-0256, openSUSE-SU-2013:0303-1, openSUSE-SU-2013:0376-1, RHSA-2013:0686-01, RHSA-2013:0728-01, VIGILANCE-VUL-12388.

Description of the vulnerability

The Ruby RDoc tool generates HTML documentation.

The highlightTarget() function of the darkfish.js file highlights words associated to the visited anchor. However, the name of the anchor is directly used without being filtered.

When an HTML document was generated by Ruby RDoc, an attacker can therefore trigger a Cross Site Scripting via the darkfish.js script.
