Debian Security Advisory DSA 884-1 security@debian.org
http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze
November 7th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Package : horde3
Vulnerability : design error
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: yes
CVE ID : CVE-2005-3344
Debian Bugs : 332290 332289

Mike O'Connor discovered that the default installation of Horde3 on
Debian includes an administrator account without a password. Already
configured installations will not be altered by this update.

The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain horde3 packages.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.4-4sarge1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.5-2

We recommend that you verify your horde3 admin account if you have
installed Horde3.

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.
