CWE-78 Open this link in a new tab

How to fix?

Upgrade angular to version 1.1.5 or higher.


angular is a package that lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It also lets you use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly.

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Script Injection due to improper sanitization of the $event object passed to the native constructor functions. That isn't protected by the fast paths in $parse.
