Posted on: 07/06/2005 10:47 AM

A trac security update has been released for Debian GNU/Linux

Debian Security Advisory DSA 739-1 security@debian.org

Package : trac
Vulnerability : missing input sanitising
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no

Stefan Esser discovered an input validation flaw within Trac, a wiki and issue tracking system, that allows download/upload of files and therefore can lead to remote code execution in some configurations.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain the trac package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.1-3sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.8.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your trac package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
will install the referenced file.

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
will install corrected packages

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

These files will probably be moved into the stable distribution on
its next update.
