Debian Bug : 388120 405980 463589

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in phpBB, a web
based bulletin board.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following problems:

CVE-2008-0471

Private messaging allowed cross site request forgery, making
it possible to delete all private messages of a user by sending
them to a crafted web page.

CVE-2006-6841 / CVE-2006-6508

Cross site request forgery enabled an attacker to perform various
actions on behalf of a logged in user. (Applies to sarge only)

CVE-2006-6840

A negative start parameter could allow an attacker to create
invalid output. (Applies to sarge only)

CVE-2006-6839

Redirection targets were not fully checked, leaving room for
unauthorised external redirections via a phpBB forum.
(Applies to sarge only)

CVE-2006-4758

An authenticated forum administrator may upload files of any
type by using specially crafted filenames. (Applies to sarge only)


For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed
in version 2.0.21-7.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been
fixed in version 2.0.13+1-6sarge4.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed

We recommend that you upgrade your phpbb2 package.
