Debian Security Advisory DSA-1508-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst

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

Package : diatheke
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id : CVE-2008-0932
Debian Bug : 466449

Dan Dennison discovered that Diatheke, a CGI program to make a bible
website, performs insufficient sanitising of a parameter, allowing a
remote attacker to execute arbitrary shell commands as the web server
user.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
1.5.9-2etch1.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.7-7sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
1.5.9-8.

We recommend that you upgrade your diatheke package.


Upgrade instructions
