Debian Security Advisory DSA 1279-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Moritz Muehlenhoff
April 22nd, 2007 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : webcalendar
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2006-6669

It was discovered that WebCalendar, a PHP-based calendar application,
performs insufficient sanitising in the exports handler, which allows
injection of web script.

For the old stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.9.45-4sarge7.

The stable distribution (etch) no longer contains WebCalendar packages.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.5-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your webcalendar package.


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

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

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