Debian Security Advisory DSA 877-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : gnump3d
Vulnerability : cross-site scripting, directory traversal
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3122 CVE-2005-3123

Steve Kemp discovered two vulnerabilities in gnump3d, a streaming
server for MP3 and OGG files. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures Project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2005-3122

The 404 error page does not strip malicious javascript content
from the resulting page, which would be executed in the victims
browser.

CVE-2005-3123

By using specially crafting URLs it is possible to read arbitary
files to which the user of the streaming server has access to.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain a gnump3d package.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9.3-1sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.9.6-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnump3d package.


Upgrade Instructions
