Debian Security Advisory DSA 1267-1 security@debian.org

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

Package : webcalendar
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2007-1343

It was discovered that WebCalendar, a PHP-based calendar application,
insufficiently protects an internal variable, which allows remote file
inclusion.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge6.

The upcoming stable distribution (etch) no longer contains webcalendar
packages.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar 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.
