The Debian Security Team published a new security update for Debian GNU/Linux. Here the announcement:

Hash: SHA1

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian Security Advisory DSA-1990-2 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Stefan Fritsch
February 04, 2010 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : trac-git
Vulnerability : shell command injection
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: yes
CVE Id(s) : CVE-2010-0394
Debian Bug : 567039

The trac-git package released in DSA-1990-1 had a wrong dependency that
could not be satisfied in Debian stable. This update corrects this
problem. For reference, the original advisory text is provided below.

Stefan Goebel discovered that the Debian version of trac-git, the Git
add-on for the Trac issue tracking system, contains a flaw which
enables attackers to execute code on the web server running trac-git
by sending crafted HTTP queries.

The old stable distribution (etch) does not contain a trac-git package.

For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in
version 0.0.20080710-3+lenny2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) and the testing distribution
(squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 0.0.20090320-1.

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

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
