Package : sword
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-0015

Ulf Härnhammar discovered that due to missing input sanitising in diatheke, a CGI script for making and browsing a bible website, it is possible to execute arbitrary commands via a specially crafted URL.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.3-3woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your diatheke package.
