Package : phpldapadmin
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
Debian bug : 561975
CVE Id : CVE-2009-4427

It was discovered that phpLDAPadmin, a web based interface for administering
LDAP servers, doesn't sanitize an internal variable, which allows remote
attackers to include and execute arbitrary local files.

The oldstable distribution (etch) is not affected by this problem.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version

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

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your phpldapadmin package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you

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.
