CVE-2015-3186: Apache Ambari XSS vulnerability

Severity: Important

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected: 1.7.0 to 2.0.2

Versions Fixed: 2.1.0

Description: Ambari allows authenticated cluster operator users to specify arbitrary text as a note when saving configuration changes. This note field is rendered as is (unescaped HTML).  This exposes opportunities for XSS.

Mitigation: Ambari users should upgrade to version 2.1.0 or above.

Version 2.1.0 onwards properly HTML-escapes the note field associated with configuration changes.
