BookStack Security Release v21.08.2
Dan Brown posted on the 4th of September 2021
BookStack v21.08.2 has been released. This security release is intended to cover a couple of XSS vulnerabilities, where a malicious user with page edit access could enter script that would execute upon page view. You should update as soon as possible if you allow untrusted users to edit content in your instance.
In addition, this releases expands the CSP headers set by BookStack to help avoid any similar vulnerabilities from being effective going forward. If you’ve performed some more advanced customizations on your instance, they may need to be altered to work with the built-in CSP system. Feel free to contact me via the channels listed below for any assistance on this.
