 distributed,fault- tolerant and schema-free document-oriented
 database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API, processed certain
 JSON callback. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted
 JSON callback that, when processed could lead to arbitrary JSON code
 execution via Adobe Flash (CVE-2012-5649).
 
 A DOM based cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the
 way browser- based test suite of Apache CouchDB, a distributed,
 fault-tolerant and schema-free document-oriented database accessible
 via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API, processed certain query parameters. A
 remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted web page that,
