Package : libphp-adodb
Vulnerability : several
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE IDs : CVE-2006-0146 CVE-2006-0147 CVE-2006-0410 CVE-2006-0806
BugTraq IDs : 16187 16364 16720
Debian Bugs : 349985 358872

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in libphp-adodb, the 'adodb'
database abstraction layer for PHP. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2006-0146

Andreas Sandblad discovered that improper user input sanitisation
results in a potential remote SQL injection vulnerability enabling
an attacker to compromise applications, access or modify data, or
exploit vulnerabilities in the underlying database implementation.
This requires the MySQL root password to be empty. It is fixed by
limiting access to the script in question.

CVE-2006-0147

A dynamic code evaluation vulnerability allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary PHP functions via the 'do' parameter.

CVE-2006-0410

Andy Staudacher discovered an SQL injection vulnerability due to
insufficient input sanitising that allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary SQL commands.

CVE-2006-0806

GulfTech Security Research discovered multiple cross-site
scripting vulnerabilities due to improper user-supplied input
sanitisation. Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to
cause arbitrary scripts to be executed in the browser of an
unsuspecting user's machine, or result in the theft of
cookie-based authentication credentials.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.51-1.2.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.52-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 4.72-0.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libphp-adodb package.
