Subject: CVE-2017-15717: Insufficient XSS protection for HREF attributes in

Vendor: The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Apache Sling XSS Protection API 1.0.4 to 1.0.18,
Apache Sling XSS Protection API Compat 1.1.0,

Description:
A flaw in the way URLs are escaped and encoded in the
org.apache.sling.xss.impl.XSSAPIImpl#getValidHref and
org.apache.sling.xss.impl.XSSFilterImpl#isValidHref allows special crafted
URLs to pass as valid,
although they carry XSS payloads.

Protection
API module.
