Package : horde3
Vulnerability : insufficient input sanitising
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Ids : CVE-2009-3237 CVE-2009-3701 CVE-2009-4363

Several vulnerabilities have been found in horde3, the horde web application
framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies
the following problems:


It has been discovered that horde3 is prone to cross-site scripting
attacks via crafted number preferences or inline MIME text parts when
using text/plain as MIME type.
For lenny this issue was already fixed, but as an additional security
precaution, the display of inline text was disabled in the configuration


It has been discovered that the horde3 administration interface is prone
to cross-site scripting attacks due to the use of the PHP_SELF variable.
This issue can only be exploited by authenticated administrators.


It has been discovered that horde3 is prone to several cross-site
scripting attacks via crafted data:text/html values in HTML messages.

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.2.2+debian0-2+lenny2.

For the oldstable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.1.3-4etch7.

For the testing distribution (squeeze) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.3.6+debian0-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your horde3 packages.
