Clickjacking

Affecting angular package, versions >=1.3.1 <1.5.0-beta.0

Do your applications use this vulnerable package? Test your applications

Overview

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 Clickjacking By enabling the SVG setting without taking other precautions, you might expose your application to click-hijacking attacks. In these attacks, sanitized SVG elements could be positioned outside of the containing element and be rendered over other elements on the page (e.g. a login link). Such behavior can then result in phishing incidents.

To protect against these, explicitly setup overflow: hidden css rule for all potential SVG tags within the sanitized content:

.rootOfTheIncludedContent svg {
  overflow: hidden !important;
}

Remediation

Upgrade angular to version 1.5.0-beta.0 or higher.
