Debian Security Advisory DSA-1827-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Steffen Joeris
July 06, 2009 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : ipplan
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2009-1732
Debian Bug : 530271

It was discovered that ipplan, a web-based IP address manager and
tracker, does not sufficiently escape certain input parameters, which
allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.


For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.86a-7+lenny1.

The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain ipplan.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) this problem will be fixed soon.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 4.91a-1.1.


We recommend that you upgrade your ipplan packages.
