- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ingo1
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-5449
Debian Bug : 396099

It was discovered that the Ingo email filter rules manager performs
insufficient escaping of user-provided data in created procmail rules
files, which allows the execution of arbitrary shell commands.

For the stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.1-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.1.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ingo1 package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
