OpenLucius is a work management platform for social communication, documentation, and projects.

The distribution doesn't sufficiently use tokens when marking messages for users as read thereby exposing a Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) vulnerability.

The distribution does not sufficiently filter taxonomy term names before outputting them to HTML thereby exposing a Cross Site Scripting (XSS) vulnerability. This vulnerability is mitigated by the fact that an attacker must have permissions to insert malicious taxonomy terms.
