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

Package : smarty
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2008-1066
Debian Bug : 469492

It was discovered that the regex module in Smarty, a PHP templating engine,
allows attackers to call arbitrary PHP functions via templates using the
regex_replace plugin by a specially crafted search string.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in version
2.6.14-1etch1.

For the old stable distribution (sarge), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.6.9-1sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version
2.6.18-1.1.

We recommend that you upgrade your smarty package.
