Description

In Jupyter Notebook before 5.4.1, a maliciously forged notebook file can bypass sanitization to execute JavaScript in the notebook context. Specifically, invalid HTML is 'fixed' by jQuery after sanitization, making it dangerous.

Solution(s)

  • debian-upgrade-ipython
  • debian-upgrade-jupyter-notebook
