Wrapper html injection vulnerability [Reported by ivanq]

In ZeroNet before rev4188 the wrapper template variables was rendered incorrectly.

Result: The opened site was able to gain WebSocket connection with unrestricted ADMIN/NOSANDBOX access, change configuration values and possible RCE on client's machine.

Fix: Fixed the template rendering code, disallowed WebSocket connections from unknown locations, restricted open_browser configuration values to avoid possible RCE in case of sandbox escape.

Note: The fix is also back ported to ZeroNet Py 2.x version (Rev3870)

Proxy bypass during source upgrade [Reported by ZeroMux]

In ZeroNet before 0.5.6 during the client's built-in source code upgrade mechanism, ZeroNet did not respect Tor and/or proxy settings.

Result: ZeroNet downloaded the update without using the Tor network and potentially leaked the connections.

Fix: Removed the problematic code line from the updater that removed the proxy settings from the socket library.

Affected versions: ZeroNet 0.5.5 and earlier, Fixed in: ZeroNet 0.5.6

XSS vulnerability using DNS rebinding. [Reported by Beardog108]

In ZeroNet before 0.5.6 the web interface did not validate the request's Host parameter.

Result: An attacker using a specially crafted DNS entry could have bypassed the browser's cross-site-scripting protection and potentially gained access to user's private data stored on site.

Fix: By default ZeroNet only accept connections from 127.0.0.1 and localhost hosts. If you bind the ui server to an external interface, then it also adds the first http request's host to the allowed host list or you can define it manually using --ui_host.
