Title:jQuery < 1.9.0 XSS Vulnerability
Summary:jQuery before 1.9.0 is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks. The;jQuery(strInput) function does not differentiate selectors from HTML in a reliable fashion. In vulnerable;versions, jQuery determined whether the input was HTML by looking for the '<' character anywhere in the string,;giving attackers more flexibility when attempting to construct a malicious payload. In fixed versions, jQuery only;deems the input to be HTML if it explicitly starts with the '<' character, limiting exploitability only to;attackers who can control the beginning of a string, which is far less common.
Description:Summary:
jQuery before 1.9.0 is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks. The
jQuery(strInput) function does not differentiate selectors from HTML in a reliable fashion. In vulnerable
versions, jQuery determined whether the input was HTML by looking for the '<' character anywhere in the string,
giving attackers more flexibility when attempting to construct a malicious payload. In fixed versions, jQuery only
deems the input to be HTML if it explicitly starts with the '<' character, limiting exploitability only to
attackers who can control the beginning of a string, which is far less common.

Affected Software/OS:
jQuery prior to version 1.9.0.

Solution:
Update to version 1.9.0 or later.
